Business partners and visibility in Botswana – join us at the Doing Business with Finland seminar on 17.4.2018!



Are you interested in the business opportunities Botswana has to offer? Finnpartnership and Team Finland in South Africa are organizing a half-day seminar Doing Business with Finland (DBF) in Gaborone, Botswana on 17.4.2018. The seminar will focus on agriculture, clean tech, education and ICT. The purpose of the seminar is to create new business opportunities between Finnish and Botswanan companies. Our local partner, Botswana Investment and Trade Centre (BITC), has invited Botswanan companies from the same sectors to the seminar. The export part of the seminar will focus on meat and tourism sectors.


Sign up by March 20 by sending an e-mail to Finnpartnership’s Kaisa Arkkila, Participants will arrange their trip and visas themselves. The trip can be part of a broader project aimed at Botswana, in which case you can apply for Finnpartnership’s Business Partnership Support. The next Application workshop will be organized on 22.3.2018 – read more here.

Besides the DBF seminar in Botswana, seminars are also being organized in Zambia on 11.4.2018 and in Namibia on 19.4.2018. Finnish companies are warmly welcome to join these seminars as well.


If you cannot attend the seminar but wish to be introduced to Botswanan companies, you can send two Powerpoint slides to Finnpartnership. We will present your company at the seminar and open the discussions with interested local companies. The slides should include:

1) Picture of the product or an illustrative picture of the service and a short introduction.

2) Name of the company and contact information (a webpage is not enough)

3) A definition of what kind of business partner the company/organization is looking for.
