The Africa Business Club at Harvard Business School would like to thank the attendees and supporters of the 15th Annual Africa Business Conference. This year's conference marked our largest ever with 1,335 attendees, composed of both prominent business leaders and young minds from around the globe.
The theme for this year's Conference, "Re-defining Africa: The Emergence of a New African Story", was in recognition of the fact that as Africa evolves, so too must the World's perception of Her. The aim was to showcase those who continue to shape and influence the African story through business and enterprise, and to create an environment for like-minded individuals to meet, exchange ideas and spur one another on to action.
On this 15th anniversary of the Conference, we innovated on the conference content, as well as its structure. The conference featured three dynamic keynote addresses and twenty-three panel sessions. The new structure included a live entrepreneurship business plan competition and an African TV and Film screening. We also expanded our corporate sponsorship and career networking programs, and concluded the conference with a lively and engaging evening gala.
Our goal with the Africa Business Conference was to challenge each attendee to live out their meaningful 'African Story'. We have enclosed a summary of the conference proceedings. We have also uploaded video recordings of the keynote addresses that captivated and enriched the attendees. We encourage you to re-read the transcripts of the panels and keynotes that have inspired many. We also urge you to contact panelists and company representatives that you met during the conference, and explore opportunities to re-define Africa!
