AfriLabs Announces Participation in the 4th India-Africa Entrepreneurship and Investment Summit


AfriLabs is excited to announce its participation in the 4th Annual India-Africa Entrepreneurship and Investment Summit, set to take place from July 18-19, 2024, at the Intercontinental Resorts Balaclava Fort, Mauritius


This premier event, organized by AfriLabs, the Economic Development Board Mauritius, Indian Angels Network and Africa Business Angels Network aims to foster collaboration and drive economic growth between the two regions. The summit will bring together eminent entrepreneurs, thought leaders, policymakers, and investors from both India and Africa, featuring a series of workshops, panels, and networking opportunities designed to explore and enhance mutual growth.


Africa’s fifty-four states produced a combined GDP in excess of US$3.2 trillion—almost the same as India. The continent’s economic growth, estimated to be 3.2 percent in 2024, includes six of the world’s fastest growing economies. India and Africa can collaborate at various levels to co-create opportunities for mutual benefit, this event will facilitate this as an endeavor. 


The Fourth India-Africa Summit intends to provide opportunities for established Indian corporates to acquire/make strategic investments into African ventures for market access and expansion. Additionally, the event aims to connect African entrepreneurs with their Indian counterparts to create AfricaFirst startups, leveraging their experience in emerging markets. The summit will also advocate for  African DFIs to invest in Africa drawing upon the experience of Indian DFIs such as SIDBI and others. Furthermore, the event seeks to connect entrepreneurial ecosystem players between India and Africa for knowledge sharing and capacity building.
