The upcoming Impact Hub New York Metropolitan Area is inviting African and New York stakeholders to partner with us on our event, “Building an African Innovation Ecosystem in New York,” on the sidelines of the 74th UN General Assembly.

Hosted by the upcoming Impact Hub New York Metropolitan Area, this UNGA side event will explore how the New York ecosystem can further accelerate innovation in Africa. The event will feature a panel of leading Africa-focused innovators from both sides of the Atlantic, SDG- focused table discussions, breakout sessions, and an innovative African cuisine tasting. Participants will include impact entrepreneurs, executives, impact investors, policy makers, academics and other leaders working towards driving innovation on the African continent.

Special breakout sessions related to health innovation and sustainable energy will also take place, as well as expo tables for 10 African businesses with products ranging from food to fashion.
