For the very first time in its 13-year history, the SA Innovation Summit (SAIS) – the largest start-up event in Africa – will be taking place virtually, connecting the start-up ecosystem across countries and continents.

The SAIS Virtual 365 Edition is set to be a space to share experiences, think, create, learn and do. At its heart is the tech entrepreneur and this is reflected by a programme packed with competitions, demo days, exhibitions, pitch battles, panel discussions, masterclasses and workshops.

The Summit will also offer a Match and Invest platform to help start-ups meet with the most suitable new business partners – a crucial component for achieving the key event outcomes of deal flow and business growth.

The platform allows businesses to profile themselves and ask for what they need in order to be matched with the right enabler, investor, corporate or entrepreneur to help them take their business forward.

The South African Innovation Summit will take place on the 31st September to the 2nd of October and you can get your tickets here.

In addition to this, you can receive a 20% discount when you use the promo code ANA20.

HOW TO GET STARTED

SAIS2020 has decided to open the event platform 2 weeks before the actual event to give delegates the opportunity to get set-up and familiarise themselves with the platform.

The app and web platform are now available and open to all the SAIS2020 attendees.

This gives delegates an opportunity to start browsing, networking and setting up meetings before the official programme kicks off.

Attendee profiles, exhibitor booths and the programme will continue to be updated and expanded on.

SAIS2020 is a two-screen experience with our mobile app and web app. You must have the mobile app downloaded to access full event details.
