Young programmers and entrepreneurs from Morocco and Africa will have the chance to network with individuals from the public and private sectors as well as regional and international investors and business incubators at the event.
With over 22 million Africans anticipated to enter the workforce each year, Africa is predicted to have the largest global labor force by the end of the century.
