This annual event is built and underpinned by the notion of Business as a Force for Good, highlighting the role of business in Africa's development. In light of the issues facing Africa and the world today, the theme for this year's conference, 'Crisis as a Catalyst for Change,' seeks to unpack opportunities within the challenges in Africa and provide various stakeholders with a platform to share their experiences and ways of navigating the crises and bringing about change.
About the Africa Business Club
The UCT Africa Business Club exists to help African professionals navigate their professional lives with equal dexterity in their given disciplines and their African identity. We explore ideas around what it might look like to create organizations that do not attempt to duplicate models of practice from other parts of the world but generate solutions born out of Africa's unique challenges and opportunities.
Our mission is to create a community of professionals, scholars, and business leaders committed to culturally relevant, socially responsible, and profitable organizations that advance the agenda of a prosperous Africa.
The objective of this year’s conference is to raise funds for workshops or courses offered by the GSB Solution Space to individuals doing business in Africa.
