Despite 1.2 billion inhabitants, a strong mobile coverage and an estimated 500 million potential players, the African continent still represents only 1% of the sales for Premium Games. At the same time the richness of African culture, stories and legends to be told through games is virtually untapped. Enter Africa came alive in 2018 with the vision to create a gaming ecosystem that represents African culture and reimagines African futures. Are you interested in how the network functions and how the local teams cooperate with each other across 15 countries? Would you like to hear more about how games are used to create strong communities and address everyday challenges? Can you imagine an African Gaming Industry ready for cooperation?
