Africa's

Investment Event

11th - 12th OCTOBER 2021 | LONDON

Welcome to AFSIC - Investing in Africa

AFSIC is believed to be the largest annual event bringing together African investors and investments taking place outside Africa and has become one of the most important conduits of investment into Africa. With the support of the sophisticated AFSIC African Investments Dashboard, AFSIC is entirely focused on bringing together Africa’s business leaders and Africa’s most important investors and dealmakers and will showcase investment opportunities from across the whole of Africa.

AFSIC is confirmed as a hybrid virtual-physical event for 11th-12th October 21.

Networking and focused meetings at AFSIC provide you with an unparalleled opportunity to discover and develop a robust network of the highest quality of African business leaders. A comprehensive programme offers delegates streamed sessions covering Banking, Agriculture, Sustainable Growth, Infrastructure, Education, Informed Investing, Power and Fintech as well as focused country specific sessions showcasing excellent projects and insight into African investment opportunities.

To grow your revenue, investments or business in Africa or to Promote Your Company’s Goods, Services and Products join our Africa Business Opportunities Dashboard Free Now to get and add Business Opportunities in Africa, or if you are looking for funding from investors for a business, project or idea then access our AFSIC African Investments Dashboard Free.

EXCEPTIONAL CONTENT

AFSIC will offer two days of  VIP keynotes and premium content panels across the following industry sectors – Banking, Agriculture, Sustainable Growth, Infrastructure, Education, Informed Investing, Power and Fintech. Streams will also feature sector specific networking sessions and investor pitches showcasing the most exciting new projects and businesses. Country focussed sessions will offer an insight into the investment climate and regulations of individual countries with  attractive investment opportunities from our Investment Dashboard highlighted.

NETWORKING SESSIONS AND EXHIBITION

Networking is at the heart of AFSIC and free flowing and structured networking sessions have been built into the AFSIC 2021 agenda. High impact scheduled sessions are structured to maximise opportunities to connect with Africa’s most important investors, dealmakers and businesses and the networking Exhibition runs concurrently to the conference offering a more informal way to engage and meet.

MEET AFRICAN DEALMAKERS EVENT

The Meet African Dealmakers Event is specifically designed for high level networking between delegates in a relaxed social environment at the inception of AFSIC. The event has consistently high attendance, offering dealmakers efficient opportunities to develop their pan African contacts.

APPLY FOR FUNDING

Our team has developed perhaps the largest network of global institutional investors focused on investment in Africa.

Adding investor-ready project details to the Dashboard is quick and easy and FREE and will be accessible by our network of investors once the project is approved by our team.
