The event provides what is in Germany a unique platform for the exchange of knowledge and information between companies and universities from Germany and Africa, as well as for interaction between companies among themselves. Core subjects include entrepreneurship and SMEs in Africa, market entry in Africa, commercial relations between Germany and Africa, plus further education and the development of qualified human resources. In particular the opportunity of utilising existing business networks plays a role.
