We are excited to announce the third annual MIT Sloan Africa Business Conference which will take place on March 16, 2013. The theme of the conference is Africa Innovate: Celebrating Successes and Addressing Challenges. Africa has experienced a lot of innovative successes in the last few years and we would like to invite you to join us in celebrating these achievements while highlighting the obstacles that still need to be overcome.
The conference will feature panels on Entrepreneurship, Food and Agriculture, Finance, and Media and Entertainment. The conference also hosts the “Vision Talks”, a set of visionary and declarative speeches from Africa-focused entrepreneurs and business leaders, and the very successful Business Plan Competition. We look forward to having you engage with the speakers, panelists and other participants on how we can move Africa forward.
To kick off the conference this year we will be hosting an MIT Africa Investment Forum on the evening of March 15, which will bring together some heavyweights of FDI in Africa. Tickets to the forum are limited and available on the registration page. For more information on the forum please click here. See you at the Media Lab on March 16th 2013!
