Mission Statement

Good Morning Africa (GMA) is a US-based social enterprise that is dedicated to reducing poverty in Africa by growing and promoting socially-responsible, African-owned businesses to create new jobs, teach new skills, and help them expand.

GMA believes that entrepreneurship is the most effective way to build wealth in a society. High-growth entrepreneurs create jobs, enable social mobility, and serve as inspirational role models.

GMA serves to identify Africa's most promising and innovative entrepreneurs. It then helps them to develop the business strategies, human capital, and financial capital needed to take their companies and visions to the next level.

Through their success, GMA aims to create a growing cadre of home-grown leaders that can serve as change-agents, fostering sustainable business practices that lend themselves to strengthening a country's economic infrastructure.

Finally, GMA believes that the proliferation of this entrepreneurial class will successfully ameliorate Africa's poverty ills, thereby promoting sustainable domestic solutions to problems that have long afflicted the region.
