Equity for Africa Summit

Equity for Africa-hosted by Liberty University School of Business. Powered by Freedom Center

April 13-15, 2021

Welcome to Equity for Africa, a global business and faith summit at Liberty University. As one of the largest Christian universities in the world, we are connecting African heads of state and officials with American business leaders. African leaders will pitch opportunities in the major sectors these leaders have shared in advance.  A host of international connectors will include: the world bank, former White House Policy liaisons, USAID, U.S. congressmen, the Heritage Foundation, and the United Nations. All connectors will be available either in person or virtually to help facilitate the complex road to capital markets. U.S. business leaders have all agreed to lend not only their sector expertise but to help connect African leaders with business executives across their vast networks. The goal of the summit is to create enduring economic growth, enhancing human welfare, within the context of shared faith with friends who hold the same business principles and values.
