Africa Prosperity Network (APN) is a private not-for-profit organization that has been established with a vision to promote Africa beyond aid.

The objective is to create platforms for holding dialogues that will reshape the thinking of African
leaders while guiding them into taking bold steps that speak to accelerated prosperity across the
continent. In this regard, trade, commerce, the structure of our national economies, political conduct, and our culture matter.
Our approach is to mobilise African leaders, both in politics and business, and help build partnerships that will reshape the principles and policies required to ensure that we place the people of Africa first.
Therefore, it is of the essence that we work towards the upliftment of the continent's standard of living, by creating an Africa conversation by Africans and for Africa in the context of the challenges and opportunities peculiar to the continent.
