The Djondo Fellowship, a partner organization, is the continent’s pre-eminent leadership fellowship focused on helping groom the next generation of multinational business leaders and companies. Named after Co-founder of Ecobank and founder of Asky Airlines Gervais Djondo, and co-chaired by Former President John Kufuor of Ghana and President Ameenah Gurib-Fakim of Mauritius, the Fellowship matches accomplished multinational business leaders (Honorary Fellows) to mentor up-and-coming CEOs and entrepreneurs with multi-national ambitions (Associate Fellows). Djondo Fellowship also works with an ecosystem of partners to provide innovative training in pan-African management alongside facilitation support for companies seeking to cross borders and multinationalize their operations.
What governments must do. One major problem with the emergence of AfroChampions is that they are concentrated in just a handful of countries. South Africa, Nigeria, Morocco, Egypt and Kenya. The AfroChampions hub initiative seeks to help cure this AfroChampion inequality. If we are to increase the numbers of AfroChampions and their regional diversity, more governments must create the conducive environments for multinationals to emerge and thrive. The Hubs are innovative platforms initiated by African governments to transform their countries to such AfroChampion growth clusters.
These awards will be an annual recognition for companies, managers, investors, policy leaders, and thinkers leading the cause as innovators, groundbreakers, and role models. They will be organized during the AfroChampions Summit.
A private-public partnership initiative aimed at promoting African homegrown companies and supporting the emergence of large African multinationals able to contribute to the development of the continent and its global standing.
This is the Initiative’s strategic plan for how African multinationals and a homegrown multinational business ecosystem can help transform, integrate and make Africa a global leader by 2030.
This program, coordinated in partnership with several African and global academic and think tank partners is crucial to our efforts. We know very little about what it has taken to build the current AfroChampions. There is a huge knowledge gap about their impacts; their current positioning in global competition; how policies affect them and how they in turn affect policy. Knowledge about how to nurture more AfroChampions. How they should be venturing into the future and leading African transformation. The program comprises a series of sponsored case studies and the AfroChampions Blog co-authored by AfroChampions executives and thinkers.
The AfroChampions Summit is designed as an annual gathering to take stock of the AfroChampions agenda, to celebrate milestones; to brainstorm together on emerging issues and solutions to cross-border business in Africa; and provide avenue for thought-leadership, advocacy, networking and partnership building. We are preparing a first edition for Spring 2018.
