The Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF), the continent’s leading women and entrepreneurship conference and awards event, is heading to North Africa for the first time. 

AWIEF2022 will take place on 26 and 27 September in Cairo, Egypt, co-organised by the Egyptian Businessmen’s Association (EBA) and in partnership with Egypt’s Ministry of International Cooperation.

Now in its 8th year, the annual AWIEF conference brings together the entire African entrepreneurship ecosystem, including entrepreneurs, start-ups, thought leaders, policymakers, international development partners, business leaders, investors, CSOs, academia, and media for high-level dialogue and discussions on issues of women empowerment, entrepreneurship, investing, technology, and innovation..

The theme for this year’s event is Advancing Africa Through Gender Integration.

AWIEF2022 is a hybrid event (in-person at the Cairo Marriott Hotel and online), with an easy-to-access virtual platform for speakers, delegates, and virtual exhibitors to participate.

AWIEF2022 will also include a dedicated onsite exhibition called The Creative Lane where businesses in the creative industry are invited to showcase their products and services. 

Book your spot now and join us in Cairo for AWIEF2022.

We are committed to Africa

Unlike many global publications, for nearly a decade we have been committed to showing a complete picture of Africa – not just a single story.  Offended by one-sided coverage of wars, disasters and disease, the founders of Africa.com created a website that provides a balanced view of Africa – current events, business, arts & culture, travel, fashion, sports, information, development, and more.
