SEED Africa symposium is an annual international forum for sharing knowledge and experience, establishing partnerships, and developing solutions to stimulate growth of social and eco-entrepreneurship. See link SEED Africa symposium 2015

The goal for 2015 symposium is “Building Bridges for Impact”. More than 500 entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors, practitioners and policy makers will examine emerging trends in the green and entrepreneurship space and look into ways of constructing new bridges to amplify the impact of social and eco-enterprises. Special attention will be given to the role of eco-entrepreneurship in the Post-2015 agenda.

The two day symposium will have several break out sessions into different workshops. Each workshop will have a panel and brainstorming sessions. See the programme link SEED Africa 2015 programme

GrowthAfrica CEO Johnni Kjelsgaard will be a panellist in one workshop addressing the issues of ” Catalysing High-Impact Clean Tech Innovations”. It is viewed that triggering entrepreneurship and innovation growth is a complex phenomenon and requires support of numerous actors in the economy to take a serious cohesive action for its growth and development. This session will focus on current initiatives that are in place to support entrepreneurship and innovation through catalysing high impact clean tech innovation. It will feature both service provider and recipients of the service.
