Date: Wednesday, March 8
TIME: 10:00 AM PT | 6:00 PM GMT | 8:00 PM CAT

Investments are needed for economic growth, and Africa needs that growth, fast. The Africa Finance Corporation estimates that the continent needs investments worth US $2.3 trillion to meet its population needs. In 2021 total funding (investments and debt) was just over US $4 billion.

How do we turn this tide? How can African entrepreneurs and the continent attract sustainable private capital? How do we frame and manage the perceived risk of investing in Africa? What investment models will drive growth and how can we develop them?

Join Stanford Seed and the Stanford Africa Business Club for an exciting discussion with our panel of experts on the topic of Investing in Africa.
