African Changemaker

Roberta Annan

Born in Ghana, Roberta is an award-winning businesswoman, a global impact investor, a philanthropist, and a mentor.

She is passionate about developing business opportunities for women in Africa.

This drive saw her establish the African Fashion Fund in 2014 to empower African designers to access the global fashion industry and market.

She is also the co-founder of Impact Fund For African Creatives, a fund that invests in creative businesses across Africa.

Roberta has a global reputation for developing investment opportunities for African entrepreneurs in the creative industries, a devotion that earned her a role as a UNEP Goodwill Ambassador.

A self-starter, the Ghanaian entrepreneur was at one time the youngest African to be inducted into the African Leadership Hall of Fame.
