Tech Solutions for Engaging the African Diaspora

Recording: Tech Solutions for Engaging the African Diaspora, Mar 11, 2019


The African Diaspora in the U.S. is more engaged than ever in all things related to Africa. Call it the WAKANDA effect. Whether it is their charitable giving, entertainment, or tech solutions, the diaspora uses various means to stay connected and grow businesses. The United States is reported to have a 42 million strong black population with 4.2 million of them being foreign-born.
Join three members of the African Diaspora from different sectors as they discuss the tech-based solutions their businesses have created for the US-Africa Diaspora. They'll also address the challenges their companies face engaging a vast Diaspora, as well as the untapped opportunities in the tech sector.
