Get Your Ticket

An initiative by WeeTracker and LeapFrog Ventures, think of BRIDGE as a blend of a tech conference and a fest - where bigwigs of the technology landscape from five East African countries and Japan are coming together in an electrifying atmosphere - to melt walls and build bridges.

With a carefully curated lineup of top government officials, VCs, PEs & businesses, BRIDGE will witness the first of its kind fusion of all the key elements of an economy. On the day of the summit, a focussed delegation of Japanese Venture Capital firms & Corporates will be flying down to Nairobi to catalyze the hyper growth opportunities in East Africa.
