Here’s what the event founder ; Matthew Dawes Has to say ;
“When we first debuted Mobile West Africa way back in February 2011 it was a different
era. West Africa’s smartphone penetration was low, Nigeria’s first incubation space (CcHUB) was yet to be launched, the eCommerce boom was still years away, and mobile money was far from reality. It has been
a remarkable few years and I would hope that in some way the event has contributed to that
I want MWA2014 to be a joyride – celebrating past successes, critically analysing the industry’s future direction and opportunities,
and to again be the conference to come and do business at. Having the likes of Tomi Ahonen and Dr. Ndukwe confirmed signifies our intent to further cement the event’s position as the best in the region.”
