"We would like to thank you again for giving the Export Import Bank of the United States (EXIM Bank) the platform to educate Trade with Africa Business Summit attendees regarding U.S. Government export resources. The summit exceeded our expectations and we look forward to participating next year. I believe our presentation did increase impact as you suggested. Many connections were made and we look forward to assisting those companies grow throughout the Continent. Don’t hesitate to contact us should you need anything..."

"This was a fantastic event and a great platform for learning more about Africa and business opportunities in Africa. There was a good mix of business executives and governments officials both from Africa and from the US to give a balanced perspective on real business opportunities and potential for the future." Brian Butler, Director, Illinois International Trade Center & SBDC
"As I was preparing to launch my new company, I spent the summer engulfed in studying international trade. I enrolled and completed a Global Business Course at Harvard Business School Online. I participated in numerous government sponsored webinars on global trade. And I can say without hesitation I learned more in two days watching the Trade with Africa Business Summit than I have in the past two years on the subject of Global Trade. Toyin Umesiri is more than a CEO, she is leading a movement for economic development that will yield a positive return for the entire continent of Africa. The consulting services that Nazaru also provides is the best investment I have made thus far to launch and grow my global business." Franklin A. Fudail, President of Amastar Corporation. Muskegon, Michigan
"Being a part of the Trade with Africa Business Summit has opened doors for Sprout Africa. We have connected with so many people who have empowered us tremendously. Our business has grown and expanded through collaborations with individuals and organizations that we met through the Summit and Toyin Umesiri. The information and mentorship we have received has also empowered us to expand in our home country South Africa, where we have secured partnerships and created farmer networks in various communities. This year we celebrate our first year in business, a milestone which many small businesses in our country do not reach, and we would like to thank the Nazaru - Trade with Africa® team for believing in our vision and giving us the opportunity to be a part of the summit this year. We are truly grateful for what the community has done for us. " Masabata Sebusi, Co-founder Sprout Africa - South Africa
"Your #AfCFTA Roundtable (virtual) event was awesome! You are doing amazing work. The U.S. Department of Commerce, EXIM and other agencies within the U.S. have well produced events, but I am telling you and I mean this 100%. You are on par and in many cases exceeding what the U.S. government is doing and our government does a good job promoting trade, but the substance of your content is next level. Awesome job"
As a community we drive the adoption and implementations of trade policies such as the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA).
