Visual and graphic representation of sessions held at the 2019 Africa Investment Forum


Around 2000 delegates attended the innovative investment marketplace which brought together heads of state, project sponsors, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and institutional investors to move projects from commitment to action.

  1. Delivering on the promise to redefine and unpack Africa's investment opportunities was a key theme at the Africa Investment Forum. During the opening ceremony African Heads of State emphasised the need to take ownership of the continent's investment narrative.
  2. Increasing access to finance and breaking down barriers were some of the key themes discussed at an Africa Investment Forum session focused on creating business opportunities for women.​ The perceived risk of lending money to women entrepreneurs was raised as one of the main causes of the growing funding gap.
