We are proud to be taking part as a speaker and an exhibitor again in 2023 in ID4Africa – the event uniting all stakeholders from the entire identity ecosystem under one roof.

Come visit TECH5 at booth No. H2-25 at the ID4Africa event in Nairobi, Kenya on May 23-25, 2023. Our team of experts will be available to share insights about our technologies and partnerships and guide you through a live demo, where you can create and verify your very own digital ID in the form of a T5-Cryptograph.

T5-Digital ID allows the issuance of a secure digital identity to a citizen’s smartphone, as well as the ability to verify that identity from another – authorised – smartphone, tablet, PC or dedicated reader. Visit us and see for yourself!

We will be participating in the “Identity at the Leading Edge of Digital Public Infrastructure” session on May 24th, 8:50 AM with a presentation.

Digital ID, as well as secure and accurate identity verification, have been the most discussed topics of the last years in African and global governments. But are the existing solutions inclusive enough to serve the needs of Foundational ID programs and provide access to government and private services to all citizens?  

During his presentation, Mr. Rahul Parthe, Co-founder, Chairman and CTO of TECH5, will talk about the missing link for inclusion – the technology developed to serve not only the immediate needs but also to boost digital transformation in Africa.  

This missing link is the ability to verify a person securely and accurately in any location in Africa, without the need for any specific equipment or internet connection, to provide a service or access to information and ensure inclusion for all citizens. 

Mr. Parthe will speak about TECH5’s technology developments, achievements, and real-world deployments in the field of inclusive digital ID.
