About the Africa Business Conference : 

The Africa Business Conference, held on the Harvard Business School campus, is the world’s largest student-run event focused on business in Africa and the largest conference about Africa outside of the Continent. By bringing together students and professionals focused on doing business in Africa, the conference provides an opportunity to discuss relevant issues and events, as well as an exceptional networking opportunity for business and community leaders, current and prospective Harvard MBA students and alumni, students from other graduate programs, and educators from around the world. The 2014 conference, another resounding success with close to 1,500 participants in attendance, marked the sixteenth anniversary of the Africa Business Conference at Harvard Business School.

“This year’s theme ‘A More Inclusive Africa: the Pursuit of Progress for All’ is very meaningful to us,” write conference co-chairs Nneka Ezeigwe and Leo Markel. “While the story of Africa's stellar growth has been amply celebrated in recent years, we believe opportunities to make it more inclusive and generate sustainable progress for all are the next chapter of Africa’s story…We want to inspire conversations that drive actions, which ultimately lead to the type of far-reaching progress that we envision for Africa. We hope to celebrate Africa’s successes, but also talk about the opportunities and innovative solutions to conquer the challenge.”
