Happy to share a few initiatives that seek to further connect and empower African entrepreneurs as well as celebrate, in particular, women entrepreneurs and leaders.
DMV African Entrepreneurs
The DMV African Entrepreneurs meetup was launched for those interested in starting a business in the Africa region, have family or friends looking to do so, or are African entrepreneurs in the D.C., Maryland, or Virginia(DMV) area.
Whether you are at pre-idea stage, to those further down the road of engaging with the new venture creation process, you’re welcomed! The meetup is also open to social entrepreneurs/non-profits. Come to discuss and share tips, advise and network with others interested in contributing to the economic growth of the African continent in sectors ranging from technology, media, agriculture and more.
Our first event will cover the recently published e-book "101 Ways To Make Money In Africa”. We’re happy to leverage this session to help attendees think through a range of ideas brought together by the authors, Harnet Bokrezion PhD and John-Paul Iwuoha.
