  • INNOVATION

    AFRIKIN® invites trailblazers and forward thinking up-and-comers who have identified gaps in the market, developed solutions that will grow market shares, and who have a presence in the marketplace, to participate in our event presentations. Our innovation lies in bridge building for the connecting of worlds. The AFRIKIN® programming platform creates a pathway from a diverse group of entrepreneurs of all ages and backgrounds, to investors who need to reach an audience that they don’t understand. Being able to perceive movements in the marketplace ahead of growth and peaks in trends and then using that information to identify elements of art and culture that will be relevant, is what determines which content links to our platforms. Our unique perspective as ‘kin’ to folk, fringe, indigenous, mainstream, outsider and street culture, enable us to connect audiences to what is lacking in the marketplace.
