EVENT OVERVIEW

Africa is an important market for business opportunities and development. These opportunities remain underutilized due to several factors, including, but not limited to, the limited knowledge of investors and entrepreneurs about business opportunities, the business climate (few opportunities for exchange between economic operators), unreliable information on the comparative advantages that would sway entrepreneurs and investors to pursue these opportunities.

The African Business Lounge is primarily dedicated to bringing together public and private companies, entrepreneurs and people of influence in the African community, international development actors (Investors / Donors of funds), foreign companies and people of African and American politico-administrative power.

During the business exposition and conferences, these drivers of the social transformation will educate and exchange on topics that contribute to social change that creates new horizons and new opportunities for the transformation of societies to facilitate a business flow and networking between Africa and the rest of the world.
