The African Diaspora Investment Symposium is the eighth annual global convening of leaders, innovators, investors, and entrepreneurs who seek to uplift the African continent by building bridges among Africans, Diasporas, and friends of Africa. Located in Silicon Valley, the innovation and entrepreneurial capital of the world, this premier conference aims to inspire and enable participants to be agents of change and active contributors to the communities in which we live and the Continent where we come from.
The symposium over the years has drawn attendees from over 80 countries. We are delighted to bring back our in-person event to celebrate renewed connectedness and connection among Africans, Diasporans, and friends of Africa. For three days, leaders and entrepreneurs from across the globe will gather to reimagine possibilities, co-create solutions, and explore opportunities that reimagine and envision the future of the continent. The symposium includes keynote addresses, fireside chats, and panel sessions featuring seasoned moderators and experts on the theme “Future Ready: Africa.”
