2019 IFC Sustainability Exchange: Invest for Tomorrow

IFC’s flagship Sustainability Exchange is hitting the road again – join us in Dakar June 18-19 to explore how to drive innovation through inclusion. The Exchange convenes game changers in infrastructure, natural resources, science, and the arts to challenge assumptions and build a pipeline of sustainable investments across Africa and the globe.

Come to the Exchange to:

  • Engage with business and thought leaders on the future of energy, mining, water, and transportation with an emphasis on cities;
  • Explore new partnerships among government, civil society, and investment leaders around emerging market trends;
  • Discover tech-driven shifts and hacks from innovators, young leaders, and community advocates;
  • Prepare blueprints for how your organization will transform business as usual to be competitive and collaborative;
  • Savor the Senegalese “Teranga” (hospitality) including music, cuisine, and creative design alongside entrepreneurism, religious tolerance, and stable governance.

 

If you are interested in receiving an invite to the Exchange, or for questions or suggestions, please contact us at commdev@ifc.org.
