An Initiative of German Industry for Future Leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa
19 leading German companies launched the “Afrika kommt!” initiative in 2008 under the patronage of the then Federal President Horst Köhler. Apart from Bayer, other global companies from different industries participating included Boehringer Ingelheim, Continental, Ruhrgas, SAP and Adolf Würth. In this way, the sponsor companies and participants laid the foundations for a lasting partnership between Africa and Germany that had not existed before.
The application process for young managers from the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa runs from October 1 until December 31, 2012. Applicants require a university degree and at least two years of professional experience.
