Celebrating 10 years of AFSIC – Investing in Africa.

London, September 2023

AFSIC, now in its 10th year, is believed to be the largest African investment event taking place annually outside Africa and has become one of the most important conduits of investment into Africa. Over the past ten years AFSIC has been entirely focused on bringing together Africa’s business leaders and Africa’s most interesting investment opportunities with the continent’s most important investors and dealmakers to facilitate new investment into Africa. Wide ranging support from exceptional partners and sponsors AFSIC, over the past ten years, has led the way in profiling investment opportunities from Africa and providing an excellent forum and associated platforms to showcase these opportunities to investors. AFSIC is a conference that is very focused on networking and delegates attend year on year as they feel the variety of interactions and the superb content delivered all contribute to getting deals done and investment secured.

Supported and sponsored by some of the leading Africa-focused corporates, AFSIC 2023 will build upon the last ten years successes.

Networking and focused business meetings are at the heart of business at AFSIC.

The AFSIC 2023 networking opportunities include:

• Matchmaking sessions facilitated through the sophisticated Event and Meeting App which goes live one month prior to the event.

A networking exhibition with key sponsors and partners offering enhanced opportunities to meet with them
