The 6th Cambridge Africa Business Network (CABN) flagship event will be held on 17 June at the University of Cambridge. They promise an interesting and exciting event in which they will explore the opportunities and risks of conducting business in Africa, in sectors such as energy, infrastructure, technology, agriculture and education with a great line-up of speakers and panellists.
This year’s conference is unique and will go beyond words to deeds that make a difference in Africa. They intend to leverage Cambridge’s unique position as Europe’s start-up capital to connect people and resources to exciting Africa-focused start-up’s that have a positive impact on society. The CABN is, therefore, launching the 1st $US10K Lions’ Den Entrepreneurship Prize Competition to award the most promising and impactful start-up from Africa. The competition is a first of its kind in Europe.
The event will conclude with a VIP gala dinner at Lucy Cavendish College.
