20th Wharton Africa Business Forum

In the Trenches: Exploring Catalysts Driving Africa’s Growth

November 16—18, 2012 • Philadelphia

We are now preparing the 2013 Wharton Africa Business Forum, please visit http://wabf2013.whartonafrica.com for more info.

Welcome to the 20th Wharton Africa Business Forum

Africa presents a robust investment case. The IMF projects that seven of the top ten fastest-growing economies in the world will come from Africa, driven by favorable demographics, increasing political stability and improving economic management. We want to engage thought leaders in a dialogue to deepen our understanding of the catalysts driving continent-wide growth as evidenced by our theme “In the trenches: Exploring catalysts driving Africa’s growth.”

We are pleased to provide a platform for Africa’s leading entrepreneurs, innovators, and executives, who are at the heart of this economic growth, to share their insights on major growth drivers and showcase key investment and career opportunities.

On behalf of the Wharton African Students Association, we are delighted to welcome participants from Africa and across the globe.

We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia!
