State of AI in Africa

Analysis & Advisory

Joining up the dots in the African 4IR landscape

We provide analysis, reports, surveys, consulting support, innovation challenges and industry introductions.  In 2022 we launched the State of AI in Africa report, which is a first of its kind analysis of the vibrant dynamic of the African AI tech scene.  Our long-standing regional network and database of 3500+ smart tech companies in the Africa region gives us a unique perspective to help your business.

We found immense value from AI Media helping us navigate the new and expanding AI ecosystem in Africa – large corporates can find numerous partnering, product and service offerings from the innovators showcased at Africa’s largest Business focused community event
