As a result of months of planning and coordination, the AfriCap team is proud to say that we have secured five speakers:

 

George Ayittey of American University

Mallam Nasir El-Rufai the Ex-FCT Minister of Nigeria

Juan Ramon Caridad with Julius Baer of Switzerland

Thiam Tidjane of Prudential UK

Mora McLean of the Africa America Institute

 

This is a great start, with expertise ranging from Academic to Investment perspectives, each of these speakers offers something unique to the program.

 

Below are some recent articles related to economic development in Africa:

– Here is another which highlights African Medical Investments, a company which aims to provide healthcare services to Africa’s burgeoning middle class. What is particularly impressive about this business is the institutional investment structure. LINK 

– Lastly, this one discusses two African fund managers that have gathered investors from the US and the Gulf to back the first private equity venture focusing on african states emerging from conflict. LINK

 

AfriCAP, an investment forum organized by students at IE Business School, brings together companies, countries, and investors to discuss the way forward in light of the African business boom.
