By 2050, Africa will be home to 2.2 billion people (2017 UN Population Report). This will require targeted new enterprise growth in areas that can enhance food supply, healthcare services, and educational solutions within local communities. The African diaspora has an opportunity to explore business development on the continent. Potentially at the heart of leveraging diasporans is their untapped value in financing social enterprises and mission driven for-profits and collaborating with local leaders to structure capital investments that optimize local impact.
