The AFIF is an annual business platform initiated by EMRC in 2005 that aims to encourage entrepreneurship, promote the growth of SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) and attract the right investments to Africa. This edition of AFIF aims to focus on entrepreneurship and innovation with an emphasis on access to finance in key sectors: energy, water, ICT, health, agriculture and agro-industry. Thematic sessions will be centred around, Improving Access to Finance in Africa, and "Impact Investment in Africa: Developing the Impact Investment Sector in Africa". Parallel sessions will include:
- Financing Agriculture & Agribusiness;
- Financing infrastructure, energy & water projects;
