Annual African Diaspora Investment Symposium to Present a ‘Future Ready’ Continent During its 8th Edition at Silicon Valley
The African Diaspora Network (ADN) will hold the eighth edition of its African Diaspora Investment Symposium (ADIS) at Silicon Valley this year.
The annual event, set to take off from March 22 – 24, 2023, at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, will explore the theme “Future Ready Africa”; with discussions around trending innovations, blueprints for the future, and the interconnectedness of sectors such as climate change, healthcare, finance, education, and agriculture.
The flagship symposium of the ADN will therefore convene Africa-focused investors, entrepreneurs, high-level leaders and professionals from across four continents and 23 countries for insightful dialogue around investment and innovation in Africa; in supporting the continent to chart a course forward for large scale development across sectors.
ADIS 2023 will feature panel discussions, networking opportunities, keynote speeches, and side events covering a wide range of relevant topics that are critical for the growth and development of Africa. Discussions will focus on diaspora engagement beyond remittances, climate change, digital transformation, ESG, healthcare infrastructure, among others.
Speaking on the relevance of the symposium at a time of global economic shocks and international conflicts such as the war in Ukraine, and their effect on the continent in connection with the African Union’s Agenda 2063, Founder and Executive Director of the ADN, Almaz Negash commented:
“Africa must plan for a sustainable recovery and reimagine its path forward. What does a future ready Africa look like? How can we transform the continent through innovation, entrepreneurship, investment, and human capital development?
Join us to explore possibilities, connect, learn, and build bridges between Africans, African diasporans, and friends of Africa to help drive transformational economic, environment, and social change on the continent and the communities in which we live.”
The premier conference of the African investment ecosystem will also recognize exemplary individuals who have made remarkable contributions to Africa and the African diaspora community through the Barka Awards and the African Diaspora Luminaire Awards.
This year’s symposium, which is the first in-person signature convening since the pandemic, is sponsored by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Sanofi, United States African Development Foundation, Invest Barbados, Hugh Stuart Center Charitable Trust, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, EY, Global Fund for Women, King Baudouin Foundation United States, Africa No Filter, Mastercard Foundation, Center for African Studies, eBay, Millennium Challenge Corporation, allAfrica, William H Cilker Family Foundation, Ashinaga USA, and USA for IOM.
