Investment in Datacentres and the Edge 

4th March 2021, 2pm GMT / 9am EST

Africa is at different stage of maturity for digital infra and there’s a great deal of activity and hype around datacentre and Edge investment in particular. It’s a complex area of M&A and financing activity, with significant negotiation between owners and hyperscalers. This is coming up against Hyperscalers who are also on their own build vs buy strategies.

In this session our senior panel of owners, investors, finance and advisery will focus on:

  • Why are entities at such sky-high valuations?
  • The value of hyperscale vs retail
  • Moving up the value chain to build a value-add business from a real-estate play
  • The impacts of more global developments around data protection laws and interconnectivity

Speakers tba shortly.
