About the Conference
Named after Mount Cameroon, the Silicon Mountain is the burgeoning entrepreneurial community in Fako with headquarter in Buea. Each year, members of this community organize a conference to consult, network, exchange ideas, showcase products/services, meet stakeholders/investors and discuss possible solutions to common challenges.
The Silicon Mountain Conference is at its third year and has attracted over 900 participants, making it the largest community driven event on technology innovation and entrepreneurship in Cameroon.
About this year’s theme
Coming from a community that is built on sound engineering culture rather than sales/marketing, this year’s theme was chosen to force participants to reflect and discuss what seems to be the most worrying concern for startups and businesses within Silicon Mountain: that of Building Profitable and Scalable Ventures.
Members of the community agree the community has attained some degree of maturity and it is time to start discussing ideas on how to drive adoption, close better deals, influence policies and attract venture capital to scale beyond our immediate local markets.
Who should attend?
The Silicon Mountain Conference is open for anyone to attend upon reserving a (free) ticket.
Specifically anyone who feels part of the Silicon Mountain Community or is motivated to see this community thrive – no matter where they live – is encouraged to attend. We warmly welcome experts, techies, startups, entrepreneurs, investors, philanthropists, governments, scholars and academics from different places or works of life as guests and invitees during the conference.
While the conference has its roots from the techies in the community, the Silicon Mountain Conference has grown to be more inclusive reflecting the plethora and diversity of the Creatives, Artists, Entrepreneurs, Academics, Influencers and Change Agents who together constitute the Silicon Mountain Entrepreneurial Ecosystem.
The Silicon Mountain Conference features talks, workshops, panel discussions, showcase, demos and networking sessions. The conference gives the participant a perfect opportunity to network and share ideas/opportunities with aspiring billionaires and stars who are making things happen and changing lives from within Silicon Mountain.
