The Initiative for Global Development (IGD) is a nonprofit organization that drives poverty reduction by catalyzing business growth and investment in the developing world. We bring together an influential network of senior executives from sector-leading companies with the interest and capacity to make strategic investments in high-need, high-potential areas of Africa. Members of our Frontier Leaders network shape global connections and frontier market insights, and promote business-driven development to create economic growth and opportunity.

This episode is part of a video series to address the misperceptions of investing in Africa. For more information, visit:
