U.S. Roadshow Tour

“Africa Investment Rising: Building Momentum for Investing in Africa’s Economic Prosperity”


The Initiative for Global Development (IGD) will launch a  U.S. roadshow, to be held on  April 18-May 1, to re-shape perceptions on doing business in Africa and to showcase the continent’s tremendous business and investment potential.  The U.S. roadshow tour, “Africa Investment Rising: Building Momentum for Investing in Africa’s Economic Prosperity”, is a multi-city series of site visits for African delegation, panel discussions, and speed networking among investors and business leaders to spur greater U.S. investment in Africa.

Launching in Washington, D.C., the U.S. roadshow tour will kick off on April 18 and will travel to New York City; Des Moines, IA; and Houston, TX. Participants will be invited to attend the IGD Frontier 100 Forum on Nov. 5-6, followed by the African Development Bank’s Africa Investment Forum (AIF) from Nov. 7-9,  in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Frontier 100 Forum is an exclusive, invitation-only biannual event that brings together CEOs and senior executives from IGD’s Frontier Leader network to offer insight, collaborate, and advance initiatives in key growth sectors of Africa.
