Learn more about our new ALT Membership Programme.

Once a month, the ALT Network sends an opportunities and news update to its members. These updates include:

  • introduction of new members;
  • recent network-related news;
  • upcoming events; and
  • startup funding and training application deadlines.

Occasionally we also send out special edition updates, such as our #RemoteWorking series to help members during Covid-19.

The African Law and Tech Network is comprised of entrepreneurs and innovators from across the law and tech industries across Africa and abroad. The ALT Alliance is a directory of those individuals, businesses, law firms and organizations supported by the ALT Network as valued contributors to the African law and tech ecosystem. Within our directory, you can search for members via location, category and expertise. This directory is by no means a ranking system for members, but is instead meant to be a resource for those seeking trusted partners to collaborate with across law and technology.

The ALT Network is fortunate to have a range of partners across the law and tech industries who we work with to host events, such as webinars, summits, masterclasses, training courses, and much more. We advertise these events across our web and social platforms, as well as in our monthly news update.

We are proud to be able to offer our paid members access to these events at a 10% percent discount – sometimes more!

The ALT member event program gives some of our members the opportunity to organize and host events under the ALT banner. All these events are completely free to members to attend, we hope these events will allow members to engage with even more questions and discussions and engage with audiences interested in law and tech across the continent.

As we want to ensure that all events still meet our own and our member standards, we are currently only allowing corporate members to host events, so that we can work with them to structure and plan the event.

If you or your organization is interested in contributing relevant content to the ALT Network platform, such as articles, reports or blog posts, we would be happy to publicize it on our website and across our social media platforms. However, we do place a cap of 10 unique pieces of content to be shared per annum as part of your membership.

Every member’s business is a little different, meaning that the benefits to members change with your own requirements. As the largest network in Africa looking at the intersection of Law and technology, we have a variety of different members, covering a range of expertise and jurisdictions. Therefore, the benefits of the network are only limited by your imagination in collaborating and communicating with other members.

The ALT network was founded by Nankunda Katangaza, Alison Hook, and Christina Dutton in 2017. They use their combined expertise in legal services, international policy, tech and regulation to begin the development of a network that could facilitate discussion around the impact of law on technology and vice versa, across Africa.

The network continues to be run and managed by the three co-founders, aided by their colleagues at the consulting firm Hook Tangaza, which Nankunda and Alison co-founded.
