Investment Event

11th - 12th OCTOBER 2021 | LONDON

Welcome to AFSIC - Investing in Africa

AFSIC is the leading annual African investment event, taking place outside Africa and one of the most important conduits of investment into Africa. With the support of AFSIC’s sophisticated Investment 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.

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 focussed country specific sessions showcasing excellent projects and insight into African investment opportunities.


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 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.


The CDC sponsored 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.


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

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



Are you a fund, institutional investor, or company looking to invest into Africa? Do you want to get FREE access to our extensive AFSIC African Investments Dashboard? We receive a significant volume of investment opportunities from all regions of Africa. Receive investment opportunities from Africa direct to your Inbox. 


The AFSIC Meeting and Event app allows all registered delegates, exhibitors and sponsors to connect and to view in full the conference agenda. This offers the opportunity to schedule meetings, plan session attendance, promote services and projects and maximise chances of having high quality interactions during AFSIC.
