Meet with 30 prominent African leaders and entrepreneurs and Africa’s #1 branding guru
Africa is by many considered the continent of the future. Six of the world’s ten fastest-growing economies are in sub-Saharan Africa and Africa’s population is projected to double to 2,4 billion by 2050. To be part of the rapid development and take advantage of business opportunities in sub-Saharan African will become increasingly important for the competitiveness and growth of Swedish companies.
STING is the initiator of Go Africa, an internationalization program aiming to provide small Swedish companies with the knowledge, insights, network, tools and support needed to successfully break into and do business in sub-Saharan Africa. You can read more about Go Africa here and download the Go Africa program brochure here.
Africapreneurs #1 – Network Africa is the kick-off event for Go Africa and the premiere in a series of Africapreneurs meetups. The event is arranged in collaboration between Swedish Institute, Inclusive Business Sweden, SE Forum and Stockholm Innovation & Growth (STING) under the overall theme Building sustainable businesses, brands and relationships in Africa.
