Event description

Description

The Africa Business Club of the Imperial College Business School is hosting its Annual Africa Conference under the theme: “Innovation and Entrepreneurship for Africa’s Health”. The event will spur discussions, encourage collaboration and spark ideas for innovative solutions to some of Africa’s biggest health issues. We are inviting leading thinkers in this field to provide strategic insights into the regulatory and policy trends driving change in the sector and specific case studies of entrepreneurial approaches to achieving social and commercial goals at the same time. This is a fantastic opportunity to network with like-minded innovative entrepreneurs, policy-makers, NGOs, academics and students. The event features a keynote speech, two panel discussions, a venture pitch competition and recruitment activities. See agenda below.

The final speakers list is yet to be finalised.
