September 17, 2013
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Columbia Law School, Jerome Greene Hall, Room 106

An interactive panel discussion featuring Jonathan Berman, author of Success in Africa: CEO Insights from a Continent on the Rise, released in September 2013. Africa is the fastest growing continent on earth, one where two-thirds of the countries are growing at 6% or more. Berman took us behind the headlines with in-depth accounts from the men and women leading Africa’s phenomenal rise. Who are they? How do they view Africa’s emergence as a primary investment destination? What do they believe are the opportunities and challenges of harnessing investment and rapid growth for sustainable development?

With:

Paul E. Tierney, Jr., Chairman, Development Capital Partners, Africa; Chairman, TechnoServe, Inc.
