10th Sankalp Africa Summit 2023-Report
One of Africa’s largest convening on impact entrepreneurship and sustainable development, the 10Th Edition of the Sankalp Africa Summit, was a remarkable two-day event that positively engaged over 1,300 different stakeholders from over 45 countries globally.
The Summit, a celebration of 10 years of Intellecap’s impact journey in Africa, was our first fully in-person convening since 2020 when Covid-19 struck and forced the World into a series of virtual convenings. The event was well received and attended by veterans, some of whom have been to Sankalp many times in previous years, as well as newbies who got to experience Sankalp in its full for the very first time.
The Summit themed around ”Transformative Impact” was well received and attended by veterans, some of whom have been to Sankalp many times in previous years, as well as newbies who got to experience Sankalp in its full for the very first time. The two-and-a-half days of in-person convening featured over 45 sessions, including investor roundtables, networking cocktails and dinners, masterclasses, entrepreneur pitches, deal rooms, debates, showcases and panel sessions.
Additionally, in Sankalp’s true spirit of collaboration, we hosted ten unconference-style sessions where Sankalp attendees had the unique opportunity to contribute and curate content in informal ‘discussion zones’ with no stages, microphones, or digital screens.
