This event has now passed.

Time to enter the Dragon's Den (or the Shark Tank, as you might know it). This event gives five shortlisted African business start-ups the chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of established finance, marketing and entrepreneurial figures and noted professionals involved in the African and black community in China.

Finalists will get the chance to hear expert opinions and perspectives, as well as gain valuable connections, with the eventual winning team receiving the profits raised from activities across Africa Week to help kickstart their development. As the finale to Africa Week's busy programme, this event will also be a celebration featuring performances by African students from across Beijing.

This event will be held at Tsinghua University's Schwarzman College. Registration before the event is essential – click here to register.
