Multiple indicators suggest that Africa has entered a cycle of strong economic growth that will match that experienced by Asia over the past decades. Global investors are positioning themselves to understand the increasingly evident opportunities across Africa in greater depth. However, with 54 countries in Africa travel time and costs can be prohibitive so bringing together many of the continent’s most exciting companies into one event at one time has proven to be extremely attractive to business leaders from Africa, investors and dealmakers.
