About the symposium

The SEED West Africa Symposium is forum for sharing knowledge and experience, establishing partnerships, and developing solutions to stimulate the growth of eco-inclusive entrepreneurship in West Africa.

With the topic Reinvent? Replicate! - Replicating Eco-Inclusive Enterprise Solutions for Green Economy and Sustainable Development in West Africa, we will bring  together over 100 enterprises, financial institutions, policy makers, business development service providers and civil society representatives to develop groundbreaking approaches and explore partnerships essential to the replication of business models in order to successfully contribute to inclusive green economy and sustainable development in West Africa.

The event is already fully booked. We unfortunately have no further tickets available.
