The third annual Georgetown Africa Business Conference  is looking to get involved with the startup community, and there is an open call for socially minded early-stage startups to register for exhibition. The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 6:15 p.m., and will be held at the McDonough School of Business’s Rafik B. Hariri Building on Georgetown University’s main campus. Over 600 people are expected to attend.

The conference will bring together over 30 leaders from Africa on Feb. 3. This year’s conference, titled entitled “African Value Chain: Harnessing Local Talent & Opportunity,” was organized by Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business and the Walsh School of Foreign Service’s African Studies Program and features a keynote address by H.E. Bukola Saraki, the president of Nigeria’s senate.

Within the conference, Silver Spring, Md.–based I/O Spaces is organizing a Startup Alley section, with startups that focus on Africa and across verticals like health, fintech, foodtech and robotics.

General admission tickets for the event cost between $40 and $100.
