Celebrating 27 years of WABF

 

Welcome!

Since the inaugural Wharton Africa Business Forum  (WABF), we have welcomed thought leaders, dignitaries, CEOs, captains of industry and young professionals from around the world to contemplate career leadership and champion Africa as a business destination. In this historic 27th Anniversary year, we are honored to be able to continue in this tradition.

This year we have selected the theme “Moving Africa Forward: Mobilizing for the next growth frontier”. WABF27 hopes to distill the influences that have driven change in the past and that will drive change in the future.

Our goals for the 27th Forum are simple but bold: to provide unparalleled insights into the opportunities and challenges of operating in Africa; to connect young professionals with leaders in Africa’s public, private and social sectors; and to inspire educated talent in the Diaspora to get involved in the development of the continent.

We look forward to hosting you this November in Philadelphia.

Sincerely,

Your WABF27 Leadership Team
