The MEET Africa programme was born of an observation and a desire shared by two continents. Africa is a continent bubbling with potential and innovation and its European diaspora is a dynamic and legitimate relay.
This MEET Africa programme is part of the continuity 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 and job creation in Africa. Thus, we believe in the animation of an entrepreneurial ecosystem between this diaspora and the European and African support actors.
We choose to support them with a dedicated scheme. They have plenty of dreams and ideas. What they need is interconnected guidance and support networks to move from desires to reality.
MEET Africa exists to empower entrepreneurs to contribute to economic development and job creation in their home countries.
From the provision of targeted information, to the connection with support actors and accompaniment to financing, MEET Africa aims to be the organic and organised network of diaspora entrepreneurs.
