Africapreneurs #7 Network Africa offers 40 Swedish companies with business interest in Africa the unique opportunity to meet with prominent business leaders and entrepreneurs from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Zambia who are participating in the Swedish Institute Management Programme (SIMP) Africa 2018.  During this Matchmaking event, Swedish and SIMP Africa participants will get up to five 1-on-1 meetings each. You will get to choose who you would like to meet in early September 2018.

Six of the world’s ten fastest-growing economies are in sub-Saharan Africa and Africa’s population is projected to double to 2,4 billion by 2050. To be part of the rapid development and take advantage of business opportunities in sub-Saharan Africa will become increasingly important for the competitiveness and growth of Swedish companies.

This event will give the opportunity to connect with 30 prominent African business leaders and entrepreneurs from the Swedish Institute Management Programme. In addition, the inspirational case of High5 by Sweden will be presented – a partnership between GLOBHE and FLYPULSE, two of Sweden’s most promising drone startups working in Malawi.

If you are interested in one of the 40 spots please apply as soon as possible. You are welcome to choose to attend only the Go Africa Reconnect or the Matchmaking event, or both.

SWEDISH BUSINESSES SHOULD APPLY TO ATTEND BY 31 AUGUST. You will be notified latest by 7th September if you are among the 40 selected to attend. Places are very limited, please only apply to attend if you know for sure you will be able to come.

The event is free-of-charge but please note that a no-show fee of SEK500 excl. VAT will apply if you get a spot and don’t show up.
