EU Africa Business Forum: Impact Investment in Africa
With the clock ticking down to the ‘European Development Days – EU Africa Business Forum’ this month, it’s a hive of frantic final preparation at the Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry here in Addis Ababa to lead one of the two side events organized in Brussels on ‘Impact Investment in Africa ‘.
What’s Impact Investment you may ask?
Impact investing isn't philanthropy; it aims to turn a profit. But unlike conventional investing, impact investing is designed to serve a larger social purpose: providing underserved populations with the resources they need to improve their lives.
To give you a sense of the topic, I want to share with you today a primer on some of the speakers for Africa who will be leading the discussion.
- Martha Namundjebo-Tilahun: Chairperson of United Africa Group, Former President of Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry
- Marco Francis: Founder and President of AAA International Services – Financial, Former President of the Seychelles Chamber of Commerce and Industry
- Treasure Maphanga, AU Commission, Director Trade and Industry Division
