Success Stories

For the first time ever, the EU-Africa Business Forum foresees a session dedicated exclusively to showcasing successes of African SMEs, capturing and sharing the details of successes with business and political leaders. By highlighting star entrepreneurs, the Forum seeks to identify solutions to common problems and build confidence in policies, strategies and actions that work.
This will essentially be done through “success stories” on how particular entrepreneurs are benefitting from an improved business and investment climate, as well as from concrete initiatives and partnerships. The session will take place on Tuesday, April 1st, from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.
For the organization of the session on “success stories”, the Forum has partnered with the International Trade Centre (ITC), who will also bring to bear his experience in working with SMEs. The organizers of 12 roundtables are identifying success stories in their area of expertise. Out of all stories proposed only 6 will be selected and showcased during the session, which will be moderated by ITC.
