This year, the forum puts the spotlight on promising startups that are driving business growth in Africa and examines the important role of cross-border cooperation in supporting the continent’s economic growth and development. Another highlight is the GBF Mentorship Programme as GBF Africa 2019 provides an opportunity for the startup finalists from the UAE and Africa will have an opportunity to showcase their businesses and connect with potential investors and business partners at the forum.
