The Africa Connected Summit 

In 2014, the Villa Rosa Kempinski in Nairobi set the stage for a remarkable gathering: The Africa Connected Summit, presented by Google. This one-day celebration brought together Africans from across the continent to honour innovators and community heroes whose internet initiatives had made a tangible difference.


Against the backdrop of a vibrant Africa-themed stage, attendees were treated to a dynamic program featuring talks, panel discussions, and performances from various corners of Africa.
