GEORGETOWN'S 6th AFRICA BUSINESS CONFERENCE
KEYNOTE ADDRESS BY A DYNAMIC LEADER
SPANNING ESSENTIAL SECTORS
A PRESTIGIOUS LIST OF OVER
20 GLOBAL BUSINESS LEADERS
2021 will mark Georgetown's 6th annual Africa Business Conference - both a signature event of the University and a unique student-led collaboration between the McDonough School of Business and the Walsh School of Foreign Service's African Studies Program. Each conference has built upon the ones before it, bringing together business and policy leaders, mixing in the dynamism and innovation of students and startup founders, and helping shape conversations around business across the African continent.
The goal of the conference remains the same; showcase the growth and impact of the economic sectors across the African continent and facilitate a discussion on the opportunities that abound while promoting solutions to address the challenges that stand in the way of success.
Given the unprecedented year we have had, we feel extremely blessed that we can keep the conversation on Africa going while transitioning our meeting platform to a virtual environment. and so to that end, we look forward to receiving you on March 12 - 13 .
If you have any questions or thoughts regarding the conference, please feel free to reach out to the team.
