We introduce to all African entrepreneurs and investors the first Annual African Entrepreneurs Summit (AES). This summit is designed to facilitate introductions for promising entrepreneurs exploring opportunities in massive growth markets such as finance, oil and gas, agriculture, renewable energy, technology, natural resources, medicine, industrial internet, big data, and more. In particular, we seek entrepreneurs (prospective, first time, and serial) innovating at the intersection of multiple sectors and creating new markets. We have a strong interest in working with entrepreneurs and researchers spinning out IP from universities, research institutions, or corporate partners.
We’ll gather to discuss the sectors with the greatest entrepreneurial promise and how to drive innovation in these sectors. By limiting the size of the summit to approximately 10 invited professionals and entrepreneurs per country from across the Africa, the goal of the African Entrepreneurs Summit (AES) is to provide an outstanding educational experience combined with one of the best networking opportunities. Over the course of the program, industry leaders will participate in panels, speeches, and breakout sessions that address issues affecting early stage, growth stage, and industry leading entrepreneurial companies.
