Dakar, Senegal | Virtual

The AVCA 2022 Annual Conference will be our first in-person industry gathering since 2019. And this year, we're delving deeper to have an open, honest conversation about the future of private equity and venture capital in Africa.

About the AVCA Conference

The 18th Annual AVCA Conference has two objectives:

  • Taking stock of an industry navigating change (facing the hard facts)
  • Setting out a plan of action to usher in the next wave of private investment in Africa (transformation and recovery)

While the industry has witnessed significant success stories across fundraising and deal-making, challenges such as foreign exchange volatility, political instability, difficult regulatory environments, limited exit options, and the increasing trend of consolidation, continue to prevent investors from harnessing the continent’s investment potential.

At the AVCA 2022 Annual Conference, our speakers will share balanced views on the current state of Africa’s private equity and venture capital industry, celebrating the accomplishments and setting out a plan of action to tackle the challenges and turn the tide.

2022 will be the first year that the AVCA offers a hybrid conference. Virtual delegates will enjoy the full conference experience through our state-of-the-art virtual platform.
