What is the Frontier 100 Forum?
The Initiative for Global Develoment's (IGD) Frontier 100 Forums are an integral part of IGD’s efforts to catalyze strategic investment in Africa to encourage economic growth and opportunity that alleviate poverty. Learn more about IGD by visiting our website at www.igdleaders.org
These invitation-only events bring together IGD Frontier Leaders—senior executives of leading U.S., African, European and South Asian companies who share a commitment to business-driven development in Africa—to share insights and advance initiatives in key sectors. These high-profile events foster valuable business connections for IGD network members, driving poverty reduction in the developing world while delivering value for Frontier Leaders. Frontier 100 Forums are held twice each year, once in Africa and once in the U.S.
