Global Summer Event - Focus on Africa
Medarrangør: IDA Global Development
Learn, discuss and network – and meet people who share your interests in business and development, enjoy good food, Malian music – and maybe a dance.
For those who can make it at 15:30, the event begins with a guided tour around the open-air museum (Frilandsmuseet, Kongevejen 100, 2800 Kongens Lyngby) with focus on Danish start-ups and the cooperative movement during the early part of the last century.
At 17:00, the evening programme will start with a contemporary focus on opportunities and challenges of starting up business in today’s Africa. This will include presentations, meeting and discussing with business entrepreneurs and advisers and others with a shared interest in the combination of business and development. There will be two presentations:
“Nordekon – Africa innovation network (AIN)” is the largest private network for Scandinavian interests in Africa. It organizes thematic seminars on relevant topics and interesting business cases. Members include companies from all sectors, educational institutions, funding institutions (IFU, EKF, The Trade Council, etc.) resident ambassadors, organisations, and various trade associations.
“Africa Start-up Ecosystem” is hosting digital events, boot camps, accelerators and start-up expos for the African region. It is a subsidiary of Global Start-up Ecosystem and accelerates 100 companies to market each year. Its 2-day online accelerator programme targets African entrepreneurs from 54 countries on the continent and across the global diaspora.
During the event, there will also be time to socialize over dinner, listening and maybe dancing to the Moussa Diallo Trio from Mali.
The event is jointly organized by IDA Process, IDA Global and IDA Global Development and is open to all who registers. If you have a colleague who is new to Denmark and/or share an interest in business and development – take the opportunity to invite and come with the person for this interesting and joyful event.
