The MEST Africa Technology Summit kicked off today in Accra with a series of panels and keynotes looking to, ‘identify and explore the disruption, key players and revolutions sweeping across the continent.’

Many of those ‘key players’ are found at the growing number of incubators and accelerators supporting innovation on the continent through creative co-working spaces, training programs, and mentorship for local startups and entrepreneurs.

Here are some of the Twitter hi-lites from local and international influencers at this year’s summit leading the way on day 1 of #AfriTech2015.
