The Hub Africa Forum has welcomed for its 7th edition held in Casablanca June 12-13 thousands of high-level participants from across the continent. For two days, entrepreneurs from all over the continent had the opportunity to exchange expertise and build partnerships in several areas.
The forum, held under the slogan “Open Innovation, serving SMEs in Africa”, gave a large place to innovative SMEs.
At the opening ceremony on Wednesday, the participants stressed the importance for the continent’s companies to move towards innovation, and the imperative need for States to accompany them in this process.
Held annually since 2012, the Hub Africa forum offers a “multifunctional and multidimensional platform” for discussion between business leaders, entrepreneurs, and investors from Africa, Europe, and from around the world.
The pan-African forum, which has earned its status as the meeting place for startups in particular, has gathered about 8,000 participants during the previous edition, according to Alioune Guèye, CEO of Hub Africa and CEO of Africa Challenge Group, organizer of the event.
