The AfroChampions Initiative is a public-private partnership designed to galvanize African resources and institutions to drive Africa's economic integration - notably through the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). As a consequence, we support the emergence and success of African economic champions, which have a critical role in integrating African markets and accelerating the transformation of the continent and its global competitiveness.
The AfroChampions Initiative is based in Accra, Ghana, as a non-profit organization, the AfroChampions Organization. Under the high patronage of H.E. Olusegun Obasanjo, former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, H.E. Thabo Mbeki, Former President of the Republic of South Africa, H.E. Hailemariam Dessalegn, Former Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, and Mr. Gervais Djondo, Founder of Ecobank and Asky Airlines, it works with various partners - companies, financing institutions, governments - in Africa and beyond. We have thus defined four priority focal areas of work:
Contribute to the elaboration of public policies in favor of African integration and inclusive development.
Create networks and partnerships of African champions from the private and public sectors to collaborate on projects and initiatives to transform Africa.
Encouraging investment in game-changing projects on the continent that accelerate integration and transformation, particularly on industrial and infrastructure deployment issues.
Build and promote the next generation of African institutions, innovative minds, and leaders.
