The Africa Business Forum at Stanford is the premier event in the Bay Area for those curious and excited about business in Africa. It is an excellent opportunity to learn about various business opportunities you might want to explore. Come listen to distinguished speakers who are shaping the future of some of the world's fastest growing countries. As we enter the second decade of the forum, we will explore the theme of Shifting Tides: Diversifying Economies and Creating Quality Growth. We will hear from leaders in agriculture, e-commerce, education, energy, finance, healthcare, manufacturing and technology. All are welcome to attend. Whether you speak one of the 2000+ languages of Africa or cannot tell the difference between Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, we invite you to come and engage in discussion with thought leaders and entrepreneurs. The theme Shifting Tides: Diversifying Economies and Creating Quality Growth captures the rise of a new type of growth in Africa and one that is not driven by resource extraction and that can be sustained for the long run. The forum will showcase how enterprising individuals and organizations across Africa are delivering the services that Africans are demanding.
