P3 Network to host US Africa Summit in Washington, D.C.
“The opportunity for a private-public partnership with the African leadership at this event aims to deliver a sustainable future for the continent’s technology development.” This is the view of Africa Global Solutions executive director Yordanos Fesshaye about the P3 United States-Africa Summit (P3-USAS).
Scheduled for Tuesday, 13 and Wednesday, 14 December at the Waldorf Astoria in Washington, D.C., the much-anticipated event will be hosted by the P3 Network, a leading blockchain thought leadership platform focused on global dialogue.
A number of African dignitaries, US government officials, CEOs, and private enterprises will attend, establishing cross-country dialogue and lasting partnerships. They are set to participate in a series of roundtables, meetings, and networking activities.
“We look forward to engaging with leaders of the continent to further the dialogue on their efforts currently underway in energy and blockchain infrastructure projects along with critical supply chain programmes,” says P3 Network chief executive Jonathan Leigh. “The US-Africa Summit will allow us to build on our common goals of blockchain and technology adoption.”
The P3-USAS will be a milestone for both the public and private sectors, believes Leigh. It gathers political and business leaders and experts on digital assets to showcase how digital transformation can support economies and businesses. P3 Network members will have the opportunity to share valuable insights about their existing projects across Africa.
According to Leigh, P3 Network’s mission as a thought leadership platform is to be an access point for stakeholders to provide guidance on the regulatory and policy landscape across the blockchain.
Meanwhile, ThirdEye, the software company leader in immersive technology development that supports the U.S Military, is one of the key contributors to the assignment.
“ThirdEye is excited to collaborate with African leadership and P3 Network in expanding Web3.0 and Metaverse augmented reality use cases for education & telehealth in the region,” says Nick Cherikuri, chief executive of ThirdEye.
P3-USAS is a series of roundtables and private meetings that will serve as a gathering for P3 Network Members and government dignitaries from the African continent and the United States to create an environment for a prosperous Africa and build back a better world within each region.
The upcoming event follows an announcement that P3 Network has entered a definitive agreement with First Wall Street Capital Mena managing director Malik Brooks, a global merchant bank, to launch the P3 Capital Fund.
Leigh says, “The P3 Capital Fund will focus on supporting and accelerating the nascent blockchain industry and innovation globally. The fund will initially be launched in three steps, with the first two addressing early-stage and late-stage companies in the industry. While the third section of the fund will connect critical supply chain projects to the blockchain industry.”
