Amplify Africa has partnered with Endeavor Impact to bring you a free virtual summit that serves as an opportunity to support the people, ideas, and values shaping the future! You can empower the next generation of executives, creators, artists and leaders of the African diaspora by enrolling for NXT: Africa Edition.
