The Hub is partnering with the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) for the 10th U.S. Africa Business Summit, being held February 1-4 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This activity is part of ongoing collaboration between the two organizations with the aim of boosting two-way trade and investment between the US and Africa.
[The event] will bring together business representatives and government officials, entrepreneurs and investors, decision-makers and managers, from throughout Africa, the United States and beyond, to talk about what you really need to achieve your goals, forge new partnerships, expand your business and, ultimately, make it a success.
The Hub will host a special session dubbed, 'The Vault', during which five selected small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), operating across East Africa, will have the opportunity to pitch their businesses to investors. The Hub will also provide training for the five businesses to ensure that they are well prepared to pitch and tackle questions from investors.
