“The programme content explored the most promising aspects of the country’s potential. Participants were equipped with knowledge to: understand growing market opportunities, spot where the action is, and what it takes to invest and improve intercultural exchange among people interested in investing in Africa,” Uzo said.

He added that the highlight of the week was an investment challenge, a Dragon’s Den contest, where participants were required to use the knowledge gained during the course of the programme to develop an action plan for investing in any of the identified growing markets.
