British African Business Alliance (BABA) is a diaspora led network for Business Leaders, Investors and Development organizations in Africa or expanding into Africa.
Our members are looking at opportunities to do business with partners in the diaspora, with UK businesses, or on the African continent. BABA provides a platform for our members to set up and thrive in their Africa venture.
As a network, our objective is to encourage investment, business partnership, enterprise, and the creation of sustainable jobs in Africa, and also in the UK. Everyone who attends one of BABA’s regular networking events should come away with new knowledge, new contacts, and the opportunity for a deal.
