Boosting U.S.-Africa Trade and Investment, and Fostering Sustainable Development in Africa

The Brown Capital Management Africa Forum is a premier platform for substantive and policy-oriented dialogue on key trade, investment, and sustainable development issues in Africa, and in U.S.-Africa relations. Since its launch in 2015, this six-year initiative has positioned itself at the forefront of policy dialogue on key economic and development issues pertaining to Africa. It has achieved this by providing a high-level platform for African, U.S., and international business leaders, policymakers, practitioners, and subject matter experts to have forward-leaning and solutions-oriented dialogue aimed at advancing sustainable development in Africa, and mutually beneficial trade and investment relations between Africa and the United States.

The Brown Capital Management Africa Forum is made possible by the generous support of Brown Capital Management, LLC.

Focus on Economic and Development Challenges and Opportunities in Africa

Over the last six years, the Brown Capital Management Africa Forum has focused on a wide range of economic and development issues, using its platform to bring attention to critical topics facing Africa, U.S.-Africa relations, and Africa’s international engagement.

Unparalleled Convening Power

The Africa Forum has achieved its premier status by deploying its unparalleled convening power to bring over 1500 people together, including business leaders, policymakers, and subject matter experts from Africa, the United States, and other regions of the world for forward-leaning, solutions-oriented dialogue. The Forum has served as a source of expert analysis and inclusive dialogue, being a first port-of-call for policy issues related to trade, investment, and development in Africa, and to U.S. economic engagement with Africa.

Thought Leadership

The Brown Capital Management Africa Forum has developed a strong reputation for thought leadership through its cutting-edge research and analysis on issues at the heart of Africa’s economic development. The Forum’s publications communicate actionable ideas and policy options for addressing and engaging with both economic challenges and opportunities in Africa.

Africa is poised for unprecedented growth and development…Through this Forum and series of events, we strive to expand the discussion of critical African issues, bringing both challenges and opportunities to the forefront of policy discussions.”
