Prosperity and Progress in Africa

New Insights | New Paradigms | New Partnerships

The Africa Futures Conference will be held virtually on Friday, March 18th and Saturday, March 19th. Register here.

The conference features insights and analysis of a continent on the move. Featuring multi-sectoral and interdisciplinary conversations between business leaders, innovators, development practitioners, policy makers, and academics, this annual event provides a platform for extraordinary ideas and unlikely connections.

Our speakers will represent networks, businesses and institutions that are at the forefront of a dynamic and ever changing continent. These are entrepreneurs who are innovating and disrupting old paradigms, visionary political, business and nonprofit leaders, and academics whose research defines new fields and helps to make sense of social change and continuity.
