The conference took place at our partner the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg on the 13th and 14th of last month.
africon’s Managing Director, Marc Zander, moderated and led the panel of discussion of the first day ” To what extent can universities facilitate market entry for industries” with panelists representing different business fields and academic backgrounds. The panel of discussion highlighted multiple important points about private sector in Africa:
- Opportunities of cooperation between universities and businesses
- Entrepreneurship and development in Africa
- International business between Germany and Africa

After covering those important points, the audience was given an adequate time to ask questions related to the panel. At the end of this successful day and panel, the signing ceremony of BRS Market Attractiveness Index SME Africa took place.
