RENEW Strategies

About the International Gathering


A Global Gathering of Conscious Capitalists.

RENEW’s International Gathering in Washington, D.C. convenes IAN members and guests to explore the dynamic investment landscape in sub-Saharan Africa, through the lens of SME investing. Guests will spend the evening at the Embassy of Canada, overlooking the Capitol Building with other like-minded individuals, business executives, thought leaders and experts in the impact and angel investing space. RENEW aims to elevate angel and impact investing and how the private sector is driving growth. The International Gathering is a great opportunity to have important conversations related to impact investing and how we’re all contributing to Africa’s growth story.

The fourth Impact Angel Network (IAN) International Gathering was held in Washington, D.C. on May 17th, 2019. Read more about the event here.

Friday's event is open to IAN members, guests and key stakeholders. Additional, members-only events will be held throughout the weekend to enable members to connect, share stories and engage in detailed discussions of companies in RENEW's pipeline and portfolio.
