On behalf of New York University’s Stern School of Business and the Stern in Africa (SiA) executive leadership team, we are excited to welcome you to the inaugural Stern Africa Forum (SAF) - one of the school’s premiere events this year. We intend for the Forum to do two things:
• build a legacy of an event that will continually highlight Africa’s role in the global economy
• raise NYU's and Stern’s profile on the continent as a preeminent institution for African thought leadership

Consistent with Stern’s emphasis on global initiatives and innovation, SAF will draw together Africa’s top business thinkers, innovators, and executives to discuss the trends driving economic development and growth on the continent. We’ll go beyond highlighting Africa's emergence as the final investment frontier, and focus on innovative business practices and ventures fueling the progress and potential of Africa's emerging economies. Let's dialogue on these topics and many others under the theme of this landmark event, which is "Redefining Africa: Innovative Business and Frontier investments in Emerging Africa”.

On behalf of Stern in Africa, we are thrilled to welcome participants from across the continent – and the globe. We look forward to seeing you in New York and engaging in great dialogue.

Best Regards
