The objective of this session is to bring together professionals and entrepreneurs who have experience in business in the diaspora and in Africa, and who can share knowledge and experience in the legal tech sector. Speakers will give important information to participants so that investors, institutions, SMEs and startups can be better informed about the best way to do business in Africa using technology in the delivery and consumption of legal services.
According to the program, Noel K. Tshiani, president of Agere Global, based in New York; Stéphane Engueleguele, associate director at Dike Avocats, based in Paris; Gibran Freitas, co-founder of Legal Tech Africa, based in Paris; Junior Luyindula, CEO of Avocats.cd, based in Kinshasa; Ghislain Kuitchoua, managing director at Tribune Justice, based in Douala; Youssouf Ballo, CEO of Legafrik, based in Abidjan; Walid Ghanemi, CEO of Legal Doctrine, based in Algiers; and Ruddy Mukwamu, CEO of Pluritone, based in Johannesburg, will speak on topics related to legal tech and its advantages for business success in Africa.

Ingenious City is an incubator platform and a co-working space that aims to bring together leading entrepreneurs in Congo.
Congo is one of five African countries participating in this event alongside South Africa, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire and Algeria. In fact, this country is gigantic by numbers. With 87 million inhabitants, according to McKinsey & Company’s statistics, it is the 4th most populous nation in Africa, behind Nigeria (190), Ethiopia (105) and Egypt (97). Spread over 2.34 million square kilometers, Congo is the second largest country in Africa by size after Algeria.
