The Emerging Valley Summit
THE AIX-MARSEILLE HUB FOR EMERGING MARKET INNOVATION BETWEEN EUROPE AND AFRICA
Created in 2017 in Aix-Marseille-Provence, Emerging Valley is an international summit held in Provence, France. It is a new hub for emerging innovations between Europe and Africa, attracting African and emerging market investors, startups, and digital ecosystems that are looking to strengthen their international appeal, develop their business relationships and accelerate their impact on a global scale.
Acting as a genuine bridge between African and European Tech, Emerging Valley is a unique meeting location for:
– Discovering new areas of innovation emerging in the South;
– Exploring and investing in the digital solutions of tomorrow by connecting with African tech champions;
– Co-constructing scaleup strategies between Africa, the Mediterranean and Europe.
Who is the Emerging Valley Summit for?
The Summit accelerates innovation and builds bridges between different ecosystems by bringing together all the most influential players in the industry to one place: political decision-makers, investors, public figures, startups, corporates, civil societies, innovation ecosystems, support structures, as well as competitive networks and major financial backers from Africa, the Mediterranean and Europe…
Emerging Valley has come together for 4 years running in the Aix-Marseille-Provence territory. Its location can be explained by the territory’s position as an exchange hub between Europe and Africa. It is a genuine centre of attraction for companies from around the world that wish to address African markets from their base in Marseille. Aix-Marseille-Provence also has all the assets and infrastructure necessary to attract and support the best African talent wishing to address European markets.
Emerging Valley responds to the following key market demand: continuing to support entrepreneurs by uniting ecosystems and innovators from Africa, the Mediterranean and Europe in order to construct sustainable and resilient solutions for the challenges and emergencies of our time. Each year, high-level speakers and Tech 4 Good startups come to Aix-Marseille-Provence to present their vision and projects. This year, the debates will be held 100% online so that everyone can watch them remotely.
