Milken Institute Makes an Impact at Nairobi Summit
In July, the Institute advanced its Africa Initiative by hosting two events on the continent. A Financial Innovations Lab in Johannesburg explored solutions to the persistent problem of tuberculosis in the South African mining sector, convening industry executives, officials, investors and donors to develop a social impact bond model. The following week, the Institute took part in the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Nairobi (as did President Obama), with Managing Director Mindy Silverstein speaking on the "Financing Entrepreneurship" panel. Alongside the Summit, the Institute hosted senior level programming, including an African energy infrastructure session and a CEO/Investor roundtable attended by U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker. With the Center for Financial Markets' work to help develop regional capital markets, the Institute is helping governments and businesses across Africa.
The Milken Institute is proud to partner on the Africa Business Fellowship with Strive Masiyiwa, other prominent African business leaders, the African Leadership Network and Management Leadership for Tomorrow.
