The Land of African Business, COP21 Africa Off Event, is the place to share good practices, where various actors of Africa development meet: companies and start-ups, politicians, artists, civil society members, that want the African voice to be heard in Paris!
Under the Patronage of Mister Emmanuel Macron, Ministry of Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs.
For the first time in its history, the African continent can legitimately claim one of the world’s highest growth rates. In addition, issues like health, food safety, urbanization, climate change, waste management, women’s rights, green financial mechanisms, education or even green business, will be at the heart of negotiations at COP 21. The President of the French Republic, Mr. François Hollande, has made a major diplomatic, political and economic marker of his five years of term.
Through conferences and meetings, we will offer the African nations a unique “place of life and hospitality”, a way to make their voices heard during this COP21 and enhance their expertise and views on climate change. The Land of African Business might also be considered the place where are developed, through a Reflection Committee, recommendations fostering a convergence of positions.
Showcase for the young entrepreneurs, the 100 shortlisted startups are invited to present the vision behind their enterprises, during the 9 days of the Land of African Business, and its highlight: the African Rethink Awards ceremony.
Various Side Events will accompany the Land of African Business like "Made in Africa" photo exhibition, Auction sale for the benefit of the Association OAfrica, Film projections, as well as a relaxing Africa Lounge.
