Nutrition Africa Investor Forum


Nutrition is emerging as a promising new investment sector – connect with experts, investors and high impact businesses in a first of a kind marketplace in Africa.

The Nutrition Africa Investor Forum, to be held in Nairobi (Kenya) during World Food Day on the 16-17 October 2018, is a platform for bold, fresh, holistic ideas to develop the food value chain and the role that the private sector can play in enhancing nutrition in Africa. The Forum is being hosted by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) together with Royal DSM, SUN Business Network and African Business magazine.

It will bring together business leaders and key players from the agriculture, development and academic communities as well as investors. The forum will allow investors to connect with investment opportunities in high impact nutrition businesses as well as to exchange knowledge, share experiences, explore collaborations and spark new ideas.

A dedicated marketplace and pitch competitions will connect investors with companies and entrepreneurs that play a crucial role in nutrition and food security for low income communities. The Forum will highlight the many value chain points offering opportunities for profitable investment that can also help to improve nutrition across the African continent.

A carefully devised agenda featuring a cross-section of expert speakers aims to offer attendees an in-depth insight into nutrition investments together with an understanding of future needs, their impacts and ways to mobilise funds.

We very much look forward to seeing you in Nairobi from 16th-17th October 2018 at The Nutrition Africa Investor Forum. Save the Date!
