Tropics Magazine Business Summit & Gala Dinner
South Africa welcomes global entrepreneurs
Created in partnership with CREB MULTIMEDIA group, the annual TROPICS MAGAZINE gala dinner, aims to bring under the same roof more than 150 global business leaders, young innovators, political figures and economic decision-makers in October 2017 to further encourage boldness, ambition and leadership.
For this very first edition, entrepreneurs from across the world have expressed their desire to join the ecosystem of South African startups, which is considered one of the most attractive in the world. Melting-pot of unexplored cultures and talents, South Africa remains an unavoidable destination in terms of entrepreneurship, technology and innovation because the country simultaneously manages two distinct economies: a developed economy on one hand and, a developing one on the other.
« A SIGNATURE EVENT FOR LEADERS WHO THINK GLOBAL »
Today more than ever, small and medium-sized enterprises are increasingly feeling the need to open up themselves to the world to look for new outlets. Therefore TROPICS MAGAZINE is positioning itself as a partner of choice to walk alongside emerging entrepreneurs in their conquest of international markets, investors and partners and better their image. South Africa being one of the most attractive destinations for trade, TROPICS MAGAZINE’s strategic partners look forward to encouraging innovation, to supporting startups and ventures in their strategy to internationalising their visions.
« A SPECIAL GALA DINER FOR GLOBAL LEADERS WHO TRULY MEAN BUSINESS »
Globalization has begun to dismantle the barriers that traditionally segregated local business opportunities and local firms from their international counterparts. The added value of TROPICS MAGAZINE’s first business gala dinner is obviously the publication of its annual « TROPICS Power-List » unveiling the Top leading and most innovative entrepreneurs worldwide. In the same light, TROPICS MAGAZINE is working on making South Africa a go-to-destination for entrepreneurship and Africa, a land of endless innovations.
