MEET Africa Entrepreneurship Programme For Diasporan Africans.

The MEET Africa program was born from an observation and a desire shared by two continents. Africa is a continent bubbling with potential and innovation and its European diaspora is a relay that is as dynamic as it is legitimate.

The program is a continuation of actions carried out for years by the European Union and the Member States, in particular France and Germany, to promote the dynamics of wealth creation and jobs in Africa. Thus, we believe in the animation of an entrepreneurial ecosystem between this diaspora and European and African support actors.

MEET Africa finds its raison d’être by empowering entrepreneurs to contribute to economic development and job creation in their countries of origin. From the provision of targeted information, from putting in touch with support actors and accompaniment to financing, MEET Africa aims to be the organic and organized network of entrepreneurs from the diaspora.
