Entrepreneurs of the Diaspora have established themselves as important change-makers in the US and are extending this influence to their countries of origin. Having established themselves in the Philadelphia region, these dynamic individuals are now bringing their intellectual expertise and business acumen back to Africa to foster successful entrepreneurship. ADEN is a platform where these entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs who do business in African countries can network, build, create, and sustain a strong entrepreneurship community.
