Welcome to a workshop in which individuals and organisations who are already established in Africa and have experience of the region share their ideas and experiences, and where representatives from academia and industry in Africa provide perspectives that can form a foundation for future cooperation.
The workshop will start with introductions by Bengt G Carlsson, Ambassador and Senior Advisor on Trade and Trade Policy, Africa Department, Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Stockholm and Gisele Mwepu, who is founder and CEO Okapi Finance. This is a platform to give access to financial services payments and transfers. The main markets for this platform are in Africa. In 2017 she was awarded as “Årets innovationstalang” by Vinnova.
