Net Prophet is a special kind of gathering; not only is it a meeting place for the country’s best minds and voices in tech to tackle local problems but it also offers hands-on training and workshops to attendees, as well as talks given by expert speakers.
In the past, speakers have included the likes of WikiLeaks’ very own Julian Assange. htxt.africa was recently sent a partial list of this year’s speakers:
- Michael Jordaan – Venture Capitalist and former CEO of First National Bank (FNB)
- Stephan Ekbergh – CEO/Founder of Travelstart group
- Marlon Parker – Founder of RLabs
- Erik Hersman – CEO of Kenya’s BRCK
- Michelle Atagana – Head of Communications and Public Affairs at Google South Africa
As we reported on previously, buying a VIP ticket will not only get you more access at the event, but it will also gift a ticket to a struggling startup or a student who would like to attend. Every VIP ticket translates to a free ticket for a future techie who needs it.
