After a sold-out debut conference in Nairobi last year with over 450 investors, entrepreneurs, donors etc. Intellecap is set to organize the second edition of the Sankalp Africa Summit.
Our initiative Sankalp Forum expanded into Africa in late 2012, and has been working closely with African SMEs to build a knowledge exchange & innovation corridor as well as a holistic ecosystem that can not only bring connections to investors but also equip ventures with guidance to scale.
This year, the theme of the Summit is around Accelerating Innovation and Entrepreneurship Towards an Inclusive Africa. It feeds into an extremely topical and relevant discussion in the African continent which is focused on leveraging SMEs to boost GDP and tackle unemployment.
Sankalp Africa Summit will bring forth speakers like Jeff Koinange of Kenya Television Network and Darshan Chandaria of Chandaria Industries, innovators like Duro-Aina Adebola who with 3 other friends has a product that converts human waste to electricity, and investors like Nanno Kleiterp of FMO. The list is growing and may be found here.
In addition, the Summit will witness launches of critical industry offerings including a report by Intellecap on the landscape of Youth & Entrepreneurship in Africa.
The Summit will be held on February 5 & 6 at the Strathmore Business School in Nairobi, Kenya.
