Redefining Africa — The Emergency of a New African Story.

Welcome to the 15th Annual Africa Business Conference at Harvard Business School, hosted by the Africa Business Club, a member of Student Clubs of HBS, Inc. The theme for this year’s Conference, “Re-defining Africa: The Emergence of a New African Story”, is in recognition of the fact that as Africa evolves, so too must the World’s perception of Her.

The aim of this Conference is to showcase those who continue to shape and influence the African story through business and enterprise, and to create an environment for like-minded individuals to meet, exchange ideas and spur one another on to action.

The Africa Business Conference is the world’s largest student-run event focused on business in Africa. It brings together about 1,200 participants and is the ultimate networking opportunity for business and community leaders, corporate sponsors, students, educators from around the world and anyone passionate about business opportunities in Africa. The Conference will be held at the Harvard Business School campus in Boston on the 15th-17th February, 2013

On this 15th Anniversary of the Conference, we aim to provide a multi-dimensional view of the various ways in which individuals and businesses alike are redefining Africa and cementing its place in history as a strong contributor to the global economy.

We ask for you to not simply attend, but to participate wholeheartedly – engaging with us as we jointly celebrate Africa’s successes – and deliberate on how we can actively improve on our past as we press forward. Join us for what promises to be enlightening discussion!
