Latitude59 will expand to Africa
In 2023, Latitude59 will launch a satellite event that lands us in the bubbling tech scene of Nairobi!
Why Kenya, you might ask? With 50 million people, loads of ambition and fast-growing tech-savviness, this country has a lot of potential to become the next up-and-coming startup country on the global radar. Our goal is to support the growth, impact, and global recognition of the local startup ecosystem, tech talent, and business environment.
During the past decades, Estonia has established its position and impact in the global tech scene. We’ve raised more unicorns per capita than any other nation in the world and tech innovation is integrated across all levels of our society. As we head to Kenya, we’re excited to partner up with the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and spin off from their strategy of building bridges between the Estonian and African tech ecosystems.
Latitude59 Kenya Edition is a platform for local founders to find valuable connections, discuss innovation, and overcome obstacles with the support and know-how of the global community. The event might last a day but we know its impact and seeds of cooperation will echo for the years to come!
Join us on December 6 as we’re taking the next step in Latitude59’s vision of building bridges in the international tech and startup community. Wish to join forces?

It’s not about the number of people present, it’s what you can learn from them and how big our potential impact can be. We value quality over quantity – that includes our choice of speakers, community leaders and key guests. They are ahead in the game and they play the global field.
