It's not too late to attend the world's largest student-run event focused on business in Africa. This weekend, Harvard's Africa Business Club will host the 14th Annual Africa Business Conference.
The event brings together almost 1,000 participants and is the ultimate networking opportunity for business and community leaders, corporate sponsors, students, educators from around the world, and anyone passionate about business opportunities in Africa. This year's conference will be held on campus at the Harvard Business School in Boston on Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 with several activities taking place on Friday, March 2nd, 2012.
This year's theme, "Africa Incorporated: Cultivating an Integrated Market" arises out of the dramatic turning point in Africa's history. Internally, African citizens and consumers are demanding more and better products and services. Externally, rapidly emerging markets in Asia and elsewhere present the potential for new partnerships. In light of these changes, business leaders in Africa face unprecedented opportunity.
Insightful panels include Regional Integration and Trade which explores how the changing geopolitical landscape is allowing firms to capture new markets, Capital Flows which teaches how investors are tapping into the African growth story across various asset classes, and The African Consumer which explores how firms are satisfying the growing demands of consumers on the Continent. There are more panels and even more impressive keynote speakers.
