Through the Eyes of Our Participants and Sponsors

Katie Wittingen: Engaging Diaspora in Development and Diplomacy – The Power of Public-Private Partnerships


Testimonials from our ADIS Participants, Speakers, and Sponsors:

It gave me an opportunity to meet investors and network with other fellow entrepreneurs.
I witnessed so many of the attendees networking and making deals in the meeting rooms and across the hallway.
What a great job you have done! Your team and the event were splendid. We should endeavor to make this an annual event. We will be with you all the way.

Eric V. Guichard, CEO Homestrings and Key sponsor of African Diaspora Investment Symposium
Thank you for everything that you did to put on one of the absolute BEST conferences I have seen on diaspora investment! You galvanized a great group of people and mobilized them with an inspiring program. I was honored to be a part of it. If I can help in any way with follow-up, please let me know.

Prof. Liesl Riddle, The George Washington
Being present at the African Diaspora Investment Symposium assured me that there is another way of telling the story of Africa. My commitment to support the vision of Almaz Negash for the formation of ADN grew in bigger in leaps and bounds. I want to be part of birthing a new future for Africa.
