African Diaspora have played a critical role as a driving force of globalization in promoting cultural exchange, commerce, trade, learning and innovation. Yet despite this impressive track record of success, all too often investments in Africa have been regarded not as an opportunity but rather as a risky venture with little potential for return. Despite the on-going African “economic renaissance”, opportunities are poorly understood among diaspora while others continue to reap enormous rewards. The consequences are apparent for all to see; growing inequality, short-term thinking, unsustainable business practices and brain drain.
Africa Expert Forum is a unique network comprising Africa Diaspora and Friends of Africa that are entrepreneurs, business professionals, philanthropists and filmmakers committed to the development of Africans here at home and across the African continent. As a city-based platform currently active in both Toronto and New York it offers opportunities to its members to share critical information and experiences while developing innovative approaches to investment in Africa though support to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The Network hosts regular meetings, training and capacity building events, an annual conference and investment roadshows to some of the most dynamic investment destinations in Africa.
We are a self organizing group of volunteers and always looking for sponsors and donors to support our monthly initiatives.
