The Impact Angel Network named chapter chairs for the Wilmington, Delaware, Washington, D.C. and Charlotte, North Carolina chapters in July.

This year’s chairs are Jeff and Donna Turi in Wilmington, Dr. Andrew Umhau in Washington, D.C. and Alan Gardner in Charlotte. Members of each chapter meet regularly to review investment opportunities and take trips to Africa to look at investments and advise on the growth of their portfolio companies. Members of the chapters have invested in three businesses in Ethiopia within the past year: Metad Agricultural Development PLC, an Ethiopian specialty coffee company, Mama Fresh Injera PLC, an Ethiopian commercial manufacturer and exporter of fresh-baked injera, and dVentus Technologies PLC, a clean energy company.

In addition to the three current chapters, network members live in Texas, Georgia, Minnesota and California. Network members are accredited investors who believe in using market-based solutions for wealth creation in Africa. Members have exclusive access to RENEW’s investment pipeline, and take regular, guided trips to Africa to assess opportunities, attend board meetings, consult with companies, meet with diplomats and government leaders and experience new cultures.
