More than 125 African and global business leaders convened for the Initiative for Global Development’s Fall Frontier 100 Forum on October 11-12, 2017, in Washington, DC, to drive action on unlocking greater U.S. investment in Africa and African mid-sized companies for sustainable development and inclusive growth.
Under the theme “Growing the ‘Middle’: Investing in African Companies for the Continent’s Economic Transformation”, the Fall Frontier 100 Forum brought together CEOs and senior executives from IGD’s Frontier Leader network to offer insight and scalable solutions on spurring investment opportunities to grow African companies and forge stronger business relationships between investors and African private sector leaders.
The Fall Forum featured keynote addresses and engaging panel sessions on “Attracting Private Equity Investments”, Attracting Diaspora Investments, “Financing Africa’s Agro-processing Industry”, and “Exploring Franchise Investment Opportunities”.
“Our Forums go beyond the typical networking and business discussions. As business leaders, we are all about action and solutions. We know how to solve problems in innovative and collaborative ways,” said Dr. Mima S. Nedelcovych, IGD President & CEO.
