Wharton’s Africa Business Forum

Wharton Africa Student AssociationThe Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania will convene a 1-day conference on November 11 in Philadelphia. Africa: Building New Partnerships, Impacting the Global Economy features panel sessions on a slew of NextBillion-related topics: consumer goods, private equity, information technology, housing markets, and more. Keynote speakers include Apex Capital’s Alan Patricof.

While I realize that this conference will be held on a Saturday, it only costs $50 to attend ($65 at the door) and it’s being held in the City of Brotherly Love. Talk about a perfect storm.Unfortunately, I won?t be able to attend myself. If you?re planning to be there, and would like to have your work featured on, contact us about guest blogger opportunities. It worked well for Rhys; it can work for you too.
