Co-Chair of Africa Business Summit

Jambo! Sawubona! Muraho! Hello! Bonjour!

We are excited to welcome you to the 18th edition of London Business School’s Africa Business Summit on 27 April 2019. This year we take a closer look at, learn from, and connect with the businesses, leaders and changemakers who are Winning on the Growth Continent.

Africa has been described as the next big growth market with a population of 1.2 billion, over $1.4 trillion in consumer spending and 6 of the top 10 fastest growing economies. Despite this the growth story, the continent is not without challenges. The Africa Business Summit 2019 will draw on the experience of business, government, entrepreneurial, and investment leaders and innovators from across the continent to explore how some of the critical obstacles can be overcome to succeed in the World’s next growth market.

We’re proud to be hosting the 2nd edition of the ACCEL awards for African entrepreneurs. After receiving almost 600 applications, weeks of mentoring and a rigorous selection process, three entrepreneurs will pitch their businesses and showcase what it takes to win on the continent.

It promises to be a day of insight, impact, connection, and inspiration for you to take action and contribute to the wins to ensure that the future is African.

We look forward to welcoming you on April 27!

Warm regards,

Machela Sathekga and Sara Thomas 2019 Africa Business Summit Co-Chairs
