What does the future hold for African agriculture?


After the first edition of AfricaDays focused on entrepreneurship, and which welcomed close to 2400 guests onto the campus, AfricaDays 2018 is shining the light on agriculture.

The beating heart of the continent's economies and the main employer on the continent, the African agricultural sector represents a major challenge for the future of the planet. Innovative technologies will allow us to free up the agricultural potential of Africa. The revolution of agriculture will be the driving force in innovation for the whole continent. Numerous startups are already tackling this, and with considerable success.

Transcending mere discourse, this event had the objective of offering concrete examples and solutions. We hope to give voice to the main players who are currently building the agriculture of tomorrow and who are catalysing collaborative initiatives between decision makers and innovators. 

HEC Paris invites you, in partnership with The Seed Project and MyAfricanStartup, to participate in this evening which unites entrepreneurs, experts and decision makers, on April 3 from 19:00 onwards, on the HEC Paris campus.
