Our Initiatives: What are our core events and activities?

  • Our flagship African Diaspora Investment Symposium (ADIS), held annually in Santa Clara County, California, convenes over 250 entrepreneurially-minded, Africa-focused high-level leaders and professionals from across the world for insightful dialogue around investment and innovation in Africa and partnership and mentorship opportunities. Each year this annual gathering gains new members and participants, hosting over 1000 attendees over the course of the four symposiums. ADIS 2020 will be held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA January 23-25, 2020.
  • Our Innovation and Impact Forums are part of a year-round speaker series across Silicon Valley, Washington, D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles, with thought-provoking conversations around strategic and consistent diaspora engagement in Africa’s future and empowering youth in their entrepreneurship and leadership journeys.
  • Our highly selective Builders of Africa’s Future mentorship program recognizes 10-15 outstanding emerging young executives who have demonstrated excellence in leading startups and NGOs that contribute to Africa’s development. The Builders are awarded the Impact and Innovation Award at their award ceremony held in Silicon Valley. They also attend ADIS and receive an onstage opportunity to share their stories.
