Open Africa

​​Continental Growth Opportunities & Business Lessons

In little over a decade the story written about Africa by those outside of the continent has gone from one of bust to boom. Thankfully there's now a new understanding of how nuanced and diverse markets on this continent are. Africa is not a country, and successfully engaging growth opportunities means understanding each market on its own terms.

Brand Intelligence company, Ornico, together with the Gordon Institute of Business Science, invite you to the launch of Open Africa - a joint annual publication about doing business in Africa for Africans by Africans.

​Open Africa will be launched with a panel discussion focussed on growth opportunities on the continent, together with an inside track from industry leaders doing business in Africa.


The panel discussion features:

​Boris Kamstra - CEO of Alphamin Resources

Brooks Mparutsa - Hollard International CEO

Lyal White - Director of the Centre for Dynamic Markets at GIBS

Oresti Patricios - CEO of Ornico

Dianna Games - CE of Africa @ Work and Executive Director of the South Africa-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce.


All delegates who attend the event will get a copy of Open Africa which includes insights about doing business in Africa from: Google's Luke McKend, Facebook's Nunu Ntshingila-Njeke; Wole Olaoye of Nigeria's Diametrics; Marius Oosthuizen - head of the GIBS 'Future of Business in South Africa Project'; Iroko TV's Jason Njoku; Receiptful's Adii Pienaar; Kees Snijders of Flickswitch; Silvertree's Peter Allerstorfer; and much, much more.
