Call for Diaspora Entrepreneurs

Italia Africa Business Week (IABW) aims to identify entrepreneurs from the diaspora to participate in the seventh edition of the forum.

Africa is rich in potential and innovation. Its European diaspora is a dynamic and legitimate link in the chain, contributing significantly to wealth and job creation in Africa.

Italia Africa Business Week wishes to propose a platform, lABW_Diaspora, to share its voice, gain knowledge and engage with the global community aware of the importance of diaspora entrepreneurs.

The ambition of IABW_Diaspora will therefore be to support and accompany inspiring projects led by African diaspora actors, but also to mobilise and animate entrepreneurial ecosystems in Europe and Africa.

IABW_Diaspora, available to all diaspora entrepreneurs, will be a platform for information, contacts and networking.

To build it, during the 7th edition of the Forum, we will organise a workshop first to analyse the needs of entrepreneurs in the diaspora; and then identify effective tools to create synergies and find valuable platforms.

So, if you are a diaspora entrepreneur and want to do business between Africa and Italy, we look forward to seeing you in Rome.

The seventh edition of Italia Africa Business Week will be held in Rome on 10 and 11 October 2023 at the Villa Aurelia Congress Centre – Via Leone XIII, 459.

To apply: send your application to, specifying the sector you are interested in and the languages you speak.
