Sinapis Hosting FORGE Global Summit Next Week

January 27, 2023

When: January 30 - February 5, 2023

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Organized by: Sinapis - Made possible by: Angello and Faith-Driven Investor

Sinapis, in partnership with Angello and Faith Driven Investor, is hosting an upcoming summit of leaders from 32 countries for an invitation-only gathering of capacity builders and faith-driven investors. The Forge Global Summit is the only annual conference for Christian-focused entrepreneurship ecosystems in emerging and frontier markets. This summit is an opportunity for pioneer capacity-building market leaders and entrepreneurs to come and share their visions with a global movement of funders and other support organizations.

"At Sinapis, we’ve been working since 2010 to catalyze a movement of Kingdom entrepreneurs who launch and grow profitable companies in frontier markets. Entrepreneurs like this need training, mentors, discipleship, and capital," says CEO Matthew Rohrs. “An amazing group of capacity builders and investors will collaborate over five days to accelerate the potential of these growing entrepreneurship ecosystems.

The FORGE Global Summit is centered around a two-day event held in Nairobi and will blend plenary sessions with expert-led panel discussions, and provide opportunities for attendees to gain specific insights in topic-driven breakout sessions led by subject matter thought leaders. Speakers will be from around the world and include a number of prominent entrepreneurs and capacity builders working hard to invest in the development of their hometown, Nairobi.

As part of the gathering, Sinapis is hosting its Ascent Pitch Event on Wednesday night with six businesses nearing the completion of this next-stage growth experience for CEOs and their leadership teams. Ascent is an elite program, open to limited cohorts of highly engaged East African founders and their leadership teams.
