Casablanca: Futur.e.s in Africa is back

And two for Futur.e.s in Africa. The event dedicated to digital innovation as a lever for territorial transformation is coming back for a new edition on 28 & 29 October 2019 in Casablanca under the theme “sustainable territories”.

Organized by Maroc Numeric Cluster and Cap Digital in partnership with the Region of Casablanca- Settat and the Ile-de-France Region, this event aims to bring closer the innovation ecosystems of Ile-de-France, Morocco and Africa to promote technological and commercial partnerships and promote cross innovation.

Futur.e.s in Africa 2019 will be devoted to a theme that challenges us all to know the future of sustainable territories. This second edition will highlight ideas and projects that help shape the territories and regions of tomorrow: sustainable, efficient and inclusive.

For the occasion, the event welcomes several start-ups, research laboratories, industrialists, entrepreneurs, project promoters, institutional and university students. Main point of common: they are all actors of digital innovation and ecological transition.

The program of this edition: professional meetings, conferences, workshops and demonstrations so that participants can discuss the latest trends in smart territories.

The 2019 edition of Futur.e.s in Africa will also be marked by the organization of a hackathon designed to imagine and prototype innovative solutions for the cities of tomorrow. Organized in partnership with Société Générale (France and Morocco) and Casablanca Hack Lab, this Hackathon will take place over three days from 26 to 28 October.

As a reminder, the first edition of this event gathered in 2018 more than 1000 participants, 32 international speakers including key figures of innovation in Africa and 32 start ups who were able to expose their projects. Several qualified B2B meetings have been organized for this purpose.

Futur.e.s in Africa 2019: the story of a fruitful partnership!

The Futur.e.s initiative in Africa was born from the collaboration between Cap Digital, the Paris digital competitiveness cluster and the sustainable city, and Morocco Numeric Cluster, accelerator of innovation in Morocco and in the Africa – Middle East region.

This event follows the signing of a partnership agreement in 2016 between the region of Casablanca- Settat and the Ile-de-France region to develop digital innovation that will be used as a lever for territorial transformation for the benefit of citizens, businesses and visitors to the area.
