Africa 101 for Chinese Entrepreneurs | Shanghai | May 17th

· Events,China-based

Since our China 101 sessions in Kenya and South Africa have been so successful, we have decided to do one in Shanghai. Africa is a continent-- where do we start if you're a Chinese entrepreneur?

Chinese investments and commitments to Africa are more than 188 billion a year. Historically China-African collaboration has been very one-sided, but we must solve the information asymmetry if we want to create more bilateral exchange. As Chinese entrepreneurs, how can take advantage of this massive market opportunity? China Africa Tech Initiative will be running a workshop on:
- Overview of main Chinese Business Interests in Africa
- The African Tech and Entrepreneurship Landscape as divided by Regions
- Introduction to Business Culture in Africa: Rules of Engagement
- How do you start the relationship? Investors, Production, and Networks
