Letter from our Co-founders
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Desautels African Business initiative is proud to present the first ever student-run African Business Conference in Canada. The conference will take place on Saturday, January 24th, 2015 at the Desautels Faculty of Management.
The theme of the conference will be " Business In Africa: Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders." As John F. Kennedy once said "While they are the youth of today, they shall be the leaders of tomorrow." It is in this spirit that this conference aims to inspire and equip our generation with the necessary tools to gain an extensive and encompassing understanding of the African business landscape. This event will also be a place for the curious minds to develop their knowledge and interest about business opportunities on the African continent.
We have put together a program featuring inspiring keynote speakers, vibrant discussion panels focussing on the continent's hottest industries and topics, and a sensational networking cocktail where you can make the connections of a lifetime.
We look forward to welcoming you to Montreal in January,
Aissatou, Aissata & Larissa
Desautels African Business Initiative Co-Founders
