Twenty-four years ago, African students on HBS’s campus saw the need to create a formal organization to highlight and uplift what it means to be African, do business in Africa and push for African development and prosperity. This need birthed the Africa Business Club (ABC) and informed our mission and purpose. To achieve the goals mentioned above, the Club hosts multiple large-scale events throughout the academic year, including the Africa Business Conference.
Today, the conference has become Harvard Business School’s largest conference, with over 1,300 attendees, including business leaders, academics, and students worldwide. Year after year, the conference provides an unmatched opportunity to network and exchange ideas with individuals who share a common vision for Africa.
