After holding Inspire & Connect Africa in Abidjan last year, Bpifrance returns on July 4th with a new edition dedicated to Mediterranean countries. It is the very first international event of Bpifrance’s last opened office in Casablanca.
Inspire & Connect Mediterranean will be the next great rendez-vous in Africa. On July 4th, at the Espace Orion of the Sofitel, Bpifrance will hold the second edition of its Inspire & Connect event in Casablanca, Morocco, for the Mediterranean business ecosystem to meet, exchange, and address tomorrow’s fundamental challenges. For one day, entrepreneurs, investors and economic decision-makers from Casablanca to Cairo, Abidjan, Milan, or Istanbul will get together. The program offers a panel of top speakers such as Ismael Belkhayat, CEO of Chari, Mariem Kane, Head of Innovation Department at the Minister of Digital Transformation, Innovation, and Administration Modernization, who will share their vision on entrepreneurship on the “Inspire” scene. Panel of experts will take turns on agoras and workshops surrounding 11 sectors: agroecology, healthcare, education, industry, energy, sustainable city, financial services, tourism, sport, cultural and creative industries. B2B meetings will also take place for entrepreneurs to better exchange.
An event that marks Bpifrance’s new office in Casablanca
Inspire & Connect Mediterranean occurs 5 months after Bpifrance opened its ninth office abroad in Casablanca, Morocco. This office covers North Africa and adds up to three existing ones on the African continent: Abidjan & Dakar (covering Western & Central Africa) and Nairobi (covering Eastern & Southern Africa and Indian Ocean). This new opening aims at developing Bpifrance’s business and institutional flows in North Africa, from Mauritania to Libya, to better support French companies in their development in the region.
In March 2022, the office hosted a delegation of French entrepreneurs looking to develop their business network and activities in the industry and sustainable energy sectors in Morocco. Inspire & Connect Mediterranean marks the first international event of the office, opened to every entrepreneurs and business players. Don’t miss it and register here to participate!
