AFS Annual Summit 2023


About AFS Annual Summit

Every year, the Allied for Startups Annual Summit brings together representatives from over 25 startup associations across the world. We deliberate on the most critical policy issues, discuss new trends and cast our votes to determine the focus areas for the year ahead. This democratic approach empowers the community to have a collective voice in shaping policies that impact the growth and success of the startup ecosystem.

This time around, the AFS Annual Summit has open its doors to the public for the very first time, bringing together entrepreneurs, startup communities, policymakers and industry experts to debate digital trends, entrepreneurship, and legislation. Here’s a glimpse of what happened!

The objective

We brought together delegates from over 25 global startup organizations from around the world, alongside policymakers, industry experts, and individuals with an interest in the startup ecosystem.

Facilitating learning and encouraging dialogue

In the form of keynotes and panel discussions, we tackled matters concerning startups and SMEs, from digital trends, artificial intelligence, to entrepreneurship, and legislation.

Expanding our network

By bringing together like-minded individuals, professionals, and enthusiasts in a conducive environment, we hoped to create a unique opportunity for meaningful connections and relationship-building.
