ADIS2018 Success! Thank You
Thank you to all those who made the Third African Diaspora Investment Symposium 2018 a success! From participants to speakers to sponsors, each one of you played a key role in making this convening possible. Thanks to your involvement and support, ADIS2018 has been one of our best convenings yet and only marks the start of the igniting the potential of our collective impact.
In the following weeks, we will share a complete summary and action report that tells the story of ADIS2018 and shares key lessons and next steps. Stay tuned as we continue to provide ways to engage locally and globally. More information is to come on our new Impact Africa Speaker Series.
"Like other conferences ADIS had an impressive speaker lineup and attendee list. But what was different was that everyone was accessible. This isn't a conference; it's a community. A community coming together for a two-day "family reunion" ready to give and share. There was a spirit of warmth and openness. Most importantly there was a spirit of action. It was not just talk." - Corinne Gray, MIT Sloan Fellow in Innovation and Global Leadership
The Case to Support ADN
The African Diaspora Network believes in action over words and has proven this over the past seven years by forming partnerships, building a network of networks, and fostering collaboration that has led to on-the-ground results. ADN has a first-mover advantage in that we are the first organization to bring together a network of Africa-focused entrepreneurs, investors, academics, nonprofit organizations and corporations. ADN’s tangible results have cemented it as a trusted partner that provides real value despite operating with a small team of volunteers and near-zero outside funding.
