About Choiseul Africa

Choiseul Africa encompasses all activities initiated and led by the Choiseul Institute for the African continent. Historically, these initiatives were launched in 2014 with the creation of the Choiseul 100 Africa, which identifies and connects, annually, the 200 most talented African economic leaders of their generation aged under forty.

Unmatched in scale across Africa, covering all regions, Choiseul Africa represents today:

  • A network community: Choiseul Africa connects and unites those shaping the future of Africa: committed decision-makers and influential opinion leaders forming a bold, influential, and inspiring community of nearly 450 Choiseul 100 Africa laureates and alumni,
    spanning 50 out of the continent’s 54 countries. The Choiseul Africa Awards, launched in 2022, also honor and highlight personalities who have made an impact on African affairs through their commitment.

  • A strategic vision: Choiseul Africa builds bridges by promoting the circulation of ideas between economic, public, and institutional spheres to establish lasting partnerships. Eager to further promote the African continent and play a role in bringing Africa and Europe closer together, we have been organising the Choiseul Africa Business Forum since 2019. This major investment forum brings together several hundred of the most influential decision-makers at each edition around thematic panels, placing Africa at the center of discussions.

  • A mission of valorisation: Choiseul Africa identifies and highlights talents and business opportunities, positioning itself as a pioneer of major economic trends. In this sense, our ambition is to contribute to Africa’s economic dynamism on the global stage by strengthening relationships, stimulating exchanges, and animating a community of decision-makers capable of bringing about large-scale changes.
