Be the first to reconnect face-to-face with Africa’s private equity leaders

Discover the latest in fundraising, value creation, ESG, venture, tech, infrastructure investing and more.

This year's agenda focused on the most pertinent markets trends and reflected the private capital community’s latest thinking about opportunities and challenges on the continent.

• a day dedicated to infrastructure investing
• post-COVID 19 recovery, fundraising, portfolio management and value creation, LP/GP communication, emerging managers and SMEs
• macro-economic environment, ESG, alternative investment models, secondaries, private debt, venture capital and tech investing

Why do 100+ LPs attend?
A must-attend event for local and international LPs who joined to meet leading GPs from across the continent. Dedicated LP event features included exclusive closed-door discussions, an LP breakfast and LP fund presentations across all three days.

Industry leaders will take to the stage to share their expertise. Just some of the companies that gave compelling insights in 2021 include Helios Investment Partners, FMO, Menomadin Group, TPG, FINNFUND, EBRD, DEG Impact GmbH, and many more.

Meet with the world's leading fund managers and institutional investors in the private infrastructure space. Learn about the best practices dealing with the pressures of the global pandemic, returns and growth projections, key challenges, and pro tips on the most successful investment solutions for infrastructure investors.

Our number one priority is bringing the SuperReturn and private equity community back to a face-to-face event safely.

We are working with local authorities, venue partners and suppliers and continually adapting to the latest guidelines and safety protocol.
