About this event

GOING GLOBAL SUMMIT

The old narrative of an Africa disconnected from the global economy is fading. A wave of transformation driven by business and modernization is thrusting the continent from the world's margins to the global mainstream. There is tremendous promise in the dynamism and ingenuity of Africa's entrepreneurs. The region’s abundant world-class innovation and talent are increasingly being harnessed to improve lives and generate wealth. InnoPower is working to develop a stronger pipeline of awareness and access to Africa's talent and solutions, especially in Nigeria and West Africa regions.

InnoPower's Going Global Summit presented by Business Africa Online, in partnership with Afrigrants, intends to amplify, connect, and support emerging leaders in Africa and beyond who design, launch and scale businesses making an impact across the world.

Focus:

  • Amplify: enabling emerging African leaders and businesses
  • Entrepreneurship: providing African entrepreneurs with access to resources, training and finance
  • Connection: introducing US-based businesses and service providers to Africa's innovators
  • Advocacy: increasing the viability of Africa as a region for economic development partnerships
