For the past six years, the Awards have represented the key annual event for the African business community. The objective of the Awards is to highlight a successful and confident Africa open to national, regional and global business ventures. Launched in 2008 by African Business magazine, the African Business Awards have become a platform to celebrate excellence in African business by recognising the individuals and companies that are driving Africa’s rapidly transforming economy and creating new economic opportunities for citizens and communities all over the continent.

Africa’s growing interdependence with global forces calls for a new generation of African leaders who are capable of identifying and seizing the opportunities and overcoming the challenges presented by this new era.
By discussing economic growth, foreign direct investment, official development assistance and development issues, this Forum will seek to identify and promote a new shared vision for Africa. It will also bring together top African and global political, business, media, arts, sports and development leaders in an unique, collaborative environment to freely exchange their ideas on leadership, particularly within an African context.
