Our Mission and Vision

OVERVIEW

African Diaspora Network is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization. Our mission is to sustainably serve our constituencies, marketplace, and partners. This is inextricably linked to engaging the African diaspora through an ethics of care, enhancing their well-being in their adopted homelands, and facilitating their strategic involvement in the development of Africa.

Since 2010, the African Diaspora Network (ADN) has energized collaboration among Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and African diasporans to uplift its local community towards the benefit of Africa. ADN is dedicated to providing virtual and physical forums to accelerate access to resources that foster partnership, knowledge sharing, and advance investment opportunities.

ADN has a first-mover advantage. We are the first organization to bring together a global network of Africans and friends of Africa connecting entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and leaders of nonprofit organizations, corporations, and official development agencies to learn, engage, and co-create possibilities. Our tangible results have cemented us a trusted partner that provides real value despite operating with a small team of largely self-funded volunteers to date.
