A NETWORK OF MEMBERS

Likeminded Folks Near You

RENEW and members of the Impact Angel Network (IAN) share a vision for changing the way investors view and invest in Africa. Most IAN members are referred by a trusted friend or colleague, who in turn share the experience with others. We are proud of the progress we have made so far - but we are just getting started!

The IAN has active members in cities across North America and has expanded into Europe. Each city fosters relationships amongst members, providing a focal point to organize gatherings and events. Our most active regional areas include Washington, DC, Charlotte, Atlanta, Dallas, Minneapolis, Denver, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and London.

Local advisory board chairs lead the IAN. Chairs often take on the responsibility of hosting local events and organizing trips, while also sharing insights collected across the membership with RENEW.

The current Impact Angel Network advisory board chairs include Larry & Beth DiSabatino in Wilmington, DE, Nicholas Howle in London, UK, Don Fulton in Wilmington, DE, and Danielle Gibbie in Calgary, Canada.

The IAN is proud to be the largest North American-based angel network dedicated to investing in Africa. Through shared learning, traveling, and investing experiences, members deepen their connections with like-minded investors around the world and in their own communities.
