RE: INVITATION TO SUBMISSION OF PAPERS ON AFRICAN ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INTRAPRENEURSHIP FOR THE AFRICA TRADE AND INVESTMENT CONVENTION FROM 26TH TO 27TH MARCH 2021 AT THE ROYAL TROPICAL INSTITUTE (KIT) IN AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS.

 

Amsterdam will host the Africa Trade and Investment Conference from 26th to 27th March 2021.

 

Africa has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Evidence

suggest that Africa has now entered a cycle of strong economic growth.

Investors are now positioning themselves to understand the opportunities across the African continent.

 

The Objectives of the conference are:

To promote and facilitate international trade between Africa and Europe
To facilitate Direct Investments into Africa
To connect foreign companies with competent authorities, and businesses from Africa
To facilitate SMEs and Start-ups to find an alternative financing
the solution that local banks in Africa do not offer 

We seek submission of papers on African entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.


The conference is focused on highlighting Africa’s investment

opportunities while creating an opportunity for entrepreneurs,

government delegations and business leaders to meet with investors. Over 50 speakers will provide detailed insight into the economic

transformation that many parts of Africa are currently experiencing. We

expect over 100 investors to participate in the conference.

The conference has a special focus on the needs of SMEs who are often

forgotten in International conferences targeting Africa.

 

The current COVID pandemic is greatly hurting African businesses leading to financial market volatility and disruption of industrial production and supply chains. Loss of business and financial market volatility will negatively impact on Africa’s economic growth and development.

There is a need to enhance the external financing of African businesses to ensure inclusive growth and continued job creation.

 

The 2-days event will provide a unique platform to gain strategic

knowledge about African investment opportunities and business

networking. The convention will  discuss economic opportunities such as

manufacturing and infrastructural development, Agribusiness, Renewable

Energy, Real Estate, transportation, Digital Technology, Tourism,

Financing Start-Ups and Micro Finance, Women in

Business, Healthcare, Telecommunications, and Fintech.

 

  High-potential projects in Africa will be presented to investors.

Featured agenda items will include projects showcase,

capacity building workshops, exhibition, and country presentations among others.

 

There will be matchmaking sessions dedicated to making the process of

meeting investors and trade partners easier, country-specific

presentations, sector-focused sessions, and evening networking meetings.

This will ensure trade or investment deals are concluded during the

convention.

 

We look forward to your submission of papers and participation in the Africa Trade and Investment

Convention in Amsterdam.
