A Coalition of the Willing

I work with an organisation called Africa 2.0 - members across the continent benefit from a broad network of influencers that believe in a common vision of Transforming Africa. Of particular note is the Ghana chapter, whose members run an incubator / shared workspace for young entrepreneurs (Hub Accra) and run initiatives like Start Up Africa.

Sarah, thanks for sharing your involvement in Arica 2.0! I definitely agree that the idea of a network is a powerful one when it comes of widespread impact. I’m impressed that Africa 2.0 has formed a network of 200 leaders from 35 countries. If you have some success stories and initiatives, we’d also love to hear about it!

I recently attended a SF Youth Employment Coalition meeting and was impressed by the sense of community amongst all the different agencies.
