We invite you to join an online event Business in Africa – Exploring opportunities for Finnish companies organized by Business Finland in collaboration with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Finnfund on September 14, 2021 at 14:00-15:50 (EEST Helsinki).

The aim of this webinar is to provide a platform for Finnish companies to gain new ideas and an understanding of the African market and to interact with the Team Finland network and DEG, German development finance institution.

Team Finland experts will present business opportunities in Morocco, Kenya, Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa and will provide you more information about funding tools and support for export. You will also hear inspiring company cases on doing business in Africa – challenges they have met, lessons learned and success factors operating in Africa.

Representatives of DEG – a subsidiary of the German state-owned investment and development bank KfW – will introduce their services to private-sector companies operating in developing markets.
