Future Africa Forum – Hosting Bill Gates
The Africa Center, in partnership with the Aliko Dangote Foundation, presented the Future Africa Forum on Monday, September 23, in New York.
As this year’s signature policy and business event at The Africa Center, the Future Africa Forum is a platform for sharing new ideas and strategies that challenge the structures and systems that support one-dimensional narratives of the continent, and that inform policies and ultimately affect the lives of African people, those of African descent, and the future of Africa. The event featured a fireside chat with Aliko Dangote, Mo Ibrahim, and Bill Gates about the future of African business. (Source: https://www.theafricacenter.org/events/the-future-africa-forum/)

On this event we had the privilege to work with event planner Marissa Sams, and Robert Dupont as the technical director.
