AFRICA BUSINESS FELLOWSHIP
Launched in 2016, the Africa Business Fellowship (ABF) is a partnership between African Leadership Network (ALN), Econet Foundation, and Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT). This partnership forges substantive collaborations and mobilizes the collective influence of both US and African leaders across business, government and civil society to tackle the challenges and capture promising opportunities in the future.
The program’s main objectives are:
Exposure of future American business leaders to Africa’s business and investment landscape, making them more likely to want to do business in Africa later on in their careers
Development of cross-cultural networks between fellows and their African colleagues that will last beyond the duration of the fellowship
Professional growth and impact for fellows, both in Africa and the US
