Investing in Africa is the latest buzz in emerging marketing investment funds and family offices around the world. Encompassing 50 percent of the top 10 fastest growing countries in 2011, Africa, once viewed as too risky to invest in, is a beacon of hope for investors and entrepreneurs. Investors are downloading reports by McKisney and other global consulting firms on Africa at record speeds, to educate themselves and plan their entry into Africa’s diverse and promising market.
Surprisingly, there are a limited number of events on investing in Africa in New York City, the financial capital of the US. To change this, a band of Africa thought-leaders, investors and enthusiasts are hosting a networking event at Pranna Restaurant (79 Madison @ 28th St.) on Tuesday, April 24th at 6:30pm.
Led by Zoravar Dhaliwal, Tuesday’s event promises to convene investors, entrepreneurs and executives that are keen to conduct business in Africa. This event is the first in a series of events that seek to highlight emerging investment trends and develop a community in New York that is committed to doing business in Africa.
You will hear from Wale Adeosun, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Kuramo Capital, and Zoravar Dhaliwal, Managing Director of Osaka Capital and Managing Editor of IDEAfrica.org, on their experience investing and working in Africa. The event will be held at Pranna restaurant in the charming cellar on the lower level.
This event is hosted by IDEAfrica.org, in collaboration with Osaka Capital, Africa.com, Community Lab, Benedict Lehman LLC, the Africa Business Club at Kellogg School of Management and the Series on Impact Investing at NYU.
