The Center for Emerging Markets and Northeastern's Africa Global Initiative hosted their Inaugural Africa Business Conference.

From ehealth to urban logistics, food to fintech, e-commerce to sustainable grids and cybersecurity, Africa's expanding economy holds the promise of rapid growth for tech startups and traditional companies alike, offering innovative solutions to global challenges. The conference offered members of our community—business leaders, students, researchers, and entrepreneurs—the opportunity to network and engage with inspiring changemakers in Africa through keynote speeches and panel discussions.
