The Google for Africa event will feature a 45-minute keynote address from Google executives from Africa and around the world, as well as 13 masterclass sessions focusing on helpfulness tips and tools for people, businesses, and partners.

A vibrant internet is critical for businesses and organizations in Africa. Google is committed to making the internet more helpful.
