Russell Innovation Center for Entrepreneurs (RICE) | Atlanta, GA

Event Description 

Please join the U.S.-Africa Business Center (USAfBC) as we host the officially kick-off to our newest initiative, Advance with Africa.

Advance with Africa is a nationwide roadshow and campaign aimed at increasing U.S. businesses’ understanding of commercial opportunities in Africa, transforming the narrative around Africa’s business climate, and dispelling myths—creating new opportunities for American businesses, big and small.

At each stop around the country, the roadshow will convene public- and private-sector leaders from the government and business community, in partnership with our local network of Chambers, for discussions, engagements, and panels explaining the opportunities for business to expand Africa’s commercial profile domestically, increase U.S. exports and investment, highlight tools to support new market entrants, and grow commercial opportunities.
