The CMU-Africa Entrepreneurship Forum will be a place of gathering and exchange of opinions among entrepreneurs, government, academia, investors, students, business support service providers, and many more. The forum will address relevant issues important for the success of entrepreneurs in an African context and will feature two tracks for students and ecosystem players that include a mix of plenary and panel discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities. 
The student track specifically will offer participating students the opportunity to participate in an interactive array of workshops that develop and enhance the building of an entrepreneurial mindset culminating in a multidisciplinary global challenge competition.
The ecosystem players track will focus on conversations about trends for innovation (both regionally and globally), funding, policy, the role of higher education in entrepreneurship, and more.
