- First, we were hosted by the Allen’s in Texas! Longtime members of the IAN…
- After that, it was off to Dallas, Texas where we co-hosted two events. The first, was an evening networking event with Dan Glanville and the second was an intimate lunch event with IAN member, Frank Roby. Thank you for all the time you put in to pull these events together – we couldn’t have done it without you!
- In Atlanta, we had a packed scheduled – meeting with IAN members, businesses, and individuals interested in investing in Africa. We closed off our Atlanta dates with an event co-hosted with Scott Sadler from Boardwalk Capital Management. We had a great turn out and it’s clear the interest in a different discourse about Africa as a place of opportunity rather than problems is starting to take hold in the U.S.
- Our last stop for this trip was New York City! One highlight was a lunch session hosted at Columbia University’s CI3 (Columbia Impact Investing Initiative) where we spoke about impacting investing in East Arica: turning small and medium enterprises into market leaders. With over 50 people in attendance, we had the opportunity to answer some great questions, and see what is currently happening on campus.
