Produced in partnership with Ghana’s Ministry of Finance, GIS 2017 will bring together entrepreneurs, executives and investors from across the world to Accra for two days of intense discussions and match-making around investment opportunities.

Event organizers BusinessWorld Magazine and AwkNad Group, in conjunction with several government ministries and global investment banking partners, are combining resources and expertise to put together this premier investment summit of the year in Ghana.

The Summit has three primary objectives:

  • Showcase Ghana as the premier investment destination in Africa
  • Help the government attract strategic and development funds for key projects
  • Match local businesses with international partners and investors

The summit will feature C-suite executives from some of the largest global firms, venture capitalists, private equity fund managers, investment bankers, and other business leaders from across the globe, including New York, London and Singapore. Attendees will get the rare opportunity to network with potential investors and gain unprecedented access to key officials charged with executing the government’s economic development agenda.
