In the second instalment of our four-part Annual Round-up 2015 insights series, we bring you a panel discussion on African tech startups featuring Google South Africa’s Head of Communications & Public Affairs, Mich Atagana and Entrepreneur Magazine Columnist & Co-Founder of LexNove, Andrew Taylor.

Mich has had the unique privilege of not only covering the birth, progress, and often, the demise of many startups on the continent, but also working for some as well. Her current role at Google gives her a unique vantage point— given how the company is arguably one of the world’s biggest and most successful startups ever, and is privy to tons of rich data.

Meanwhile, as a lawyer-turned-entrepreneur, and as a legal partner to many emerging small and medium-sized businesses in South Africa, Andrew operates at the coalface of the continent’s tech startup scene, and is well-placed to reflect on what kind of a year 2015 has turned out to be.
