#GTABC is the Georgetown University Africa Business Conference. The second annual conference, A Time for Ownership: The Future of Business and Governance in Africa, will be held in Washington, D.C. on February 4th, 2017.
The conference is hosted by Georgetown's McDonough School of Business in conjunction with the Walsh School of Foreign Service’s African Studies Program. The purpose of this event is to showcase the growth and impact of the private sector across the African continent and facilitate a discussion on opportunities to continue this success.
A Time for Ownership: The Future of Business and Governance in Africa will bring together 50+ leaders from across Africa to discuss the developments of various industries -- including banking, energy, healthcare, and entertainment -- and be attended by 400+ people from business, government, nonprofits and academia interested in learning more about business in Africa. The conference will include a slew of speakers, including top executives from Proctor & Gamble, Kosmos Energy, Lilium Capital, and the World Bank.
We hope that you can join Georgetown University for this conferences and future events on African business. If you have any questions, you can reach the planning team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
