Sankalp Africa Summit 2015 is focused on Accelerating innovation and entrepreneurship towards an inclusive Africa.

Taking last year’s conversation one step forward, the Summit this year will witness action oriented discussions and dialog among African entrepreneurs, investors, corporates and government representative
In convening the inaugural Sankalp Africa Summit in Nairobi, Sankalp Forum brought together over 450 delegates including start-ups, investors, DFIs, service providers and donors from Africa, Europe, US and India participated with the aim to bring an ecosystem-focused lens to conversations and actions around inclusive development. As part of the convening, we also recognized and celebrated 12 African sustainable and impact driven SMEs.
At this year’s summit, we will continue our conversation from last year on the need for ecosystem approaches to inclusive development but also dive deeper to promote action oriented discussions to support an integrated continent wide approach to inclusive development, for shared growth and prosperity.
