Africa: Continent of Tomorrow Series
The New African Century: A Deep Dive into Africa's Rising
and How Israel Can Join in

Event Series and Collaboration House

December 12, 2017 | 8:45 am – 11:30 am
Dear Clients, Colleagues and Friends,
The Africa: Continent of Tomorrow Series continues. The Israel Africa Summit in Togo scheduled for October 2017 may be postponed, but cooperation between Israel and states in Africa continues to flourish. 
Join us in meeting with the authors of Making Africa Work, A Handbook. Learn about the African economy, where it is headed, and get insights into how Israel can be a part.

Seeking to advance the dialogue between public and private initiatives in Israel and opportunities in countries in Africa with the participation of government agencies, NGO's, academics, start ups and specialists in development, the Africa: Continent of Tomorrow Series is a meeting point between professionals doing business in Africa and an informal platform to share lessons, foster collaboration and develop new initiatives, exploring opportunities, potential and challenges of commercializing innovative Israeli technologies across Africa in fields like agriculture, healthcare, and energy. Together Israeli and African partners can impact the lives of millions.
