Fondation-LAB is a proudly African non-profit organization committed to women’s economic empowerment and social entrepreneurship. We are hosting a multi-stakeholder summit in Washington D.C. and (online) to focus on these two topics, as well as to include Informal Cross Border Trade and transformational leadership.

The African continent faces a number of challenges including poor infrastructure, market access restrictions, traditional gender roles and healthcare, to name a few. We want to invite you to take part in this summit as Africa represents growth opportunities as there are many emerging economies on the continent, and her people have a genuine desire to improve their lives. The opportunities can open up investment channels that can change the lives of people and impact on your investment goals. Fondation-LAB will act as your partner on the ground to facilitate access to sub-Saharan Africa and to connect you with endorsed investment channels.

The summit will focus on the following themes: Social entrepreneurship as an economic development policy.

  • Women empowerment as a tool for development
  • Women in ICBT, challenges and opportunities
  • Transformational leadership as a tool for identifying required changes and designing and implementing solutions.

Our overarching purpose is to create a sustainable development ecosystem in Africa. This will involve kick-starting and nurturing social entrepreneurship and the promotion of women’s rights, status, safety and opportunities. By facilitating the growth and application of transformational leadership, we can improve the lives of millions of people, and change how Africa is perceived on the world stage.
