AFSIC - Investing in Africa

Leading Africa Investment Conference attended by the top Africa Investors

Join Africa’s top investors and most dynamic CEOs at AFSIC – Investing in Africa. AFSIC is the largest annual Africa investment conference taking place outside Africa.  Want to invest in Africa or raise capital for your company or project in Africa then AFSIC is for you. AFSIC has become a major conduit of African investment flows supported by our sophisticated African Investment Dashboard that matches Africa Investors to Investments across Africa. AFSIC, now in its 8th year, takes place 5th to 7th May 2020 in London. AFSIC is entirely focused on highlighting Africa’s best investment opportunities and offers African business leaders the opportunity to hold highly focused investment meetings with the most important Africa investors.

1500+ Top Africa Investors and African Business Leaders Expected to Attend in 2020

1500+ of the most important Africa investors, dealmakers and business leaders are expected to attend AFSIC in 2020. Over 350+ speakers including leading Africa investors and African business leaders will provide detailed insight into the positive economic transformation that many parts of Africa are  experiencing. The event will showcase the most attractive Africa investment opportunities from around 40+ African countries, representing all regions in the continent, as well as country sessions and sector focused workshops that will allow a deep dive into a wide range of African investment opportunities in Africa’s most exciting economies, as well as profiling the best Africa investors.

Networking with the top African businesses and Africa investors in Focused Meetings is at the heart of AFSIC

AFSIC provides you with an unparalleled opportunity to discover, develop and nurture a robust network of the highest quality Africa business leaders, including multiple networking opportunities to meet the top Africa investors, African business leaders, best Africa investments, and dealmakers. These include matchmaking sessions dedicated to making the process of meeting the top Africa investors easier, country specific sessions, sector focused events showcasing the best Africa investment opportunities, various evening social functions. Our sophisticated Event and Meeting App allows delegates to prepare up to a month ahead for critical investment meetings with top Africa investors and African business leaders. All these allow real Africa investment deals to be originated and concluded during the course of AFSIC.

Africa is the Next Big Investment Destination

Africa is the second fastest growing region in the world. Multiple indicators suggest that Africa has entered a cycle of strong economic growth that will match that experienced by Asia over the past decades. Learn from the top Africa investors to understand the increasingly evident opportunities across Africa in greater depth. However with 54 countries in Africa travel time and costs can be prohibitive, so bringing together many of Africa most exciting companies, and top Africa investors into an Africa investment conference – AFSIC – at one time has proven to be extremely attractive to African business leaders, the most relevant Africa investors and dealmakers.

Results Focused Africa Investment Conference matching African business leaders with Africa investors

AFSIC has a strong focus on results: making African investment decisions, originating and executing transactions, and raising debt or equity capital are the key objectives for delegates attending AFSIC. The programme is designed to provide delegates with multiple opportunities to access the best African investments, whether through presentations from many of the most experienced Africa investors, or through attending the many formal and informal networking sessions during the event. This strong result focus has resulted in AFSIC gaining considerable popularity with the most important Africa investors, dealmakers and African business leaders.

The wide spread of African business leaders attending this highly regarding Africa investment conference attracts a significant proportion of the most important Africa investors. These Africa investors include Africa private equity firms, direct investors, endowments, foundations, family offices, limited partners (LPs), fund of funds, Africa public equity funds, private banks, sovereign wealth funds, DFIs, IFIs, impact investors and microfinance investors alongside a wide range of African investors.
