The Financial Times and EMPEA are pleased to present the 6th annual Private Equity in Africa Summit.
This leadership summit considers the role that the private equity industry – which has been amongst the most active in responding to Africa’s commercial opportunity – can play in harnessing Africa’s growth for economic transformation.
Join a host of industry leaders to examine the diverse opportunity set in Africa and the accelerating role of private equity development across the continent.
