The conference was complemented by a varied programme as well as scientific and practical exchange between the sessions, thus promoting a constant exchange between business theory and practice.
With participants from 20 countries, the 1.5-day conference continued the successful tradition of the past years and offered a unique platform for the exchange between business and science in Germany and Africa, especially with regard to entrepreneurship in Africa, the promotion of African and German SMEs in Africa, and the training and recruitment of qualified personnel.
The participants actively exchanged their specific experiences and needs and discussed the further successful cooperation between Africa and Germany.
Workshops, World Cafés, panel discussions, fish bowls and presentations on topics such as start-up promotion, tourism, social entrepreneurship, renewable energies and best practices of German companies active in Africa provided all participants with plenty of space and time for networking and joint exchange.
The conference was part of the project “German-African University Partnership Platform for the Development of Entrepreneurship and SMEs”, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and jointly conducted by the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, the University of Cape Coast in Ghana and the University of Nairobi in Kenya.
