ABOUT THE HBS AFRICA BUSINESS CONFERENCE

Attendees from across the African continent and diaspora

This year's conference theme is "Reimagining the Road Ahead", acknowledging that as we look towards recovery from the COVID pandemic, we believe this is an opportune time for Africa to:

  • Find new ways to bring value chains inside African borders
  • Change the mindset of dependence on external parties.
  • Redefine Africa’s position in a changing geopolitical environment
  • Ensure that Africa is creating sustainable institutions that will lead to growth, pride and prosperity for all her people
