Accelerating Africa’s progress, while leaving nobody behind
Welcome to Strategic Growth Forum 2014
The Strategic Growth Forum (SGF) Africa 2014 was an unprecedented success, with over 400 delegates from across Africa and the globe. It’s where we brought senior business executives, government leaders and market leading entrepreneurs together.
The third annual SGF Africa was hosted by EY at the Sandton Convention Centre. The forum had an inspirational line-up of speakers - from Ashish Thakkar, who left school at age 15 to begin building the Mara Group in Uganda, a business that is now a pan-African conglomerate; to Siya Xusa, the young scientist from Umtata, whose boyhood dream of traveling to Jupiter has driven him to win the top prize at the prestigious Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in the United States, graduate from Harvard University and pursue an entrepreneurial venture to commercialise microfuel cell technology, to Graca Machel, activist, leader, advocate for women and children’s rights, and widow of our beloved Madiba.
We heard too from various leaders from across the private, public, and social sectors on a range of issues likely to impact on Africa’s future.
