Digital Africa Business Days


Sign up for the Digital Africa Business days on December 15th and 16th and enjoy two full days of networking with potential business partners. Through the state-of-the-art online platform you can introduce your company, search for interesting contacts and propose meetings with them.

Africa in 2020 is not the same Africa as 20 years ago. The continent’s companies and private sector are more innovative and dynamic than ever before, with its youth better educated and ambitious to become members of the globalised world. Africa’s potential has not changed since COVID-19, but the need for Africa to become more resilient in food systems, healthcare and value chains became even more urgent.

The theme of Digital Africa Business Days is “Moving Forwards Together” and aimed at co creating solutions to Africa’s challenges in food, water, energy, health and the circular economy during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

So how does it work? After registering as a participant you will be asked to fill in a profile of your company. This then gives you access to the list of other participants and you can propose one-on-one meetings with them.

You can also attend round tables that discuss various aspects of doing business in Africa, or country-specific meetings where we look at the possibilities for Dutch companies to jointly enter the market in a specific country in Africa are discussed. Feel free to also take a look at our virtual marketplace, where your main partners, including the Investment Promotion Agencies of our partner countries, will be highlighted.

The DAB-days will be kicked off by a 2-hour live-show full of inspiring keynote speakers. Also the award ceremony for the prestigious Doing Business in Africa award will be broadcast live during the DAB Days.

The DAB Days are organised in cooperation with the Dutch ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the members of the ‘Africa Coalition:’ VNO-NCW, FMO, NLinBusiness, DECP and PUM.
