MEST Africa summit 2018 is an annual event organized by the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST). The school also operates the MEST Incubator which provides training, seed investment and mentorship for the next generation of globally successful African software entrepreneurs.
Launched in 2008 by Jorn Lyseggen, MEST passes as a Pan-African entrepreneurial training program, seed fund, tech incubator and hub for African software entrepreneurs.
The creation of the organization was based on the fact that talent is evenly distributed but the opportunity is not.
From the very beginning, MEST has trained over 400 individual entrepreneurs while investing in 40+ software startups. The headquarters is situated in Accra, Ghana and they have incubators in Accra, Lagos and Cape Town and a presence in Nairobi and Abidjan. You see why they’re really Pan African?
