Our Big Bet: African Leadership Academy

Since 2007, we have been working alongside ALA's founders develop their dream:

  • Serving as Board members and advisors to leadership team
  • Coaching and partnering with ALA staff
  • Introducing ALA to other partners and funders
  • Helping build specific new pieces of the ALA operation (University support, employment on the continent - Africa Careers Network)
  • Mentoring hundreds of individual young leaders in the network
  • Matching the young leaders to employers, funding their return to the continent through stipend and transportation support and venture start-up funding
