What is Bobab?

Bobab is an online event streaming, content and networking platform dedicated to enhancing collaboration amongst professionals working in and for Africa.

We exist to accelerate science and technology on the continent, harnessing the power of a global community of experts from business, academia, civil society and government.

We showcase the best commercial, academic and charitable innovation in Africa, and the people and organisations making it happen, helping to connect you with the information, projects, events and opportunities you need.

We’ve taken our inspiration from the baobab tree, which for thousands of years has been a traditional gathering place across Africa, where communities have come together to share resources, tell stories, connect, exchange knowledge and make important decisions.

Today, Bobab is the digital gathering place where our global science and tech community – made up of thousands of professionals and experts passionate about Africa – come together to connect, share and take action.
