FRED SWANIKER

 

FOUNDER, AFRICAN LEADERSHIP UNIVERSITY

Fred Swaniker is deeply passionate about Africa and believes that the missing ingredient on the continent is good leadership.

In line with this, he has successfully founded three organizations that aim to catalyze a new generation of ethical, entrepreneurial African leaders: African Leadership Academy, African Leadership Networ, and African Leadership University. Collectively, these institutions aim to groom 3 million leaders for Africa over a 50 year period.

Swaniker has been recognized as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum and was listed by Forbes Magazine among the top ten young ‘power men’ in Africa. Fred has an MBA from Stanford Business School, where he was named an Arjay Miller Scholar, a distinction awarded to the top 10% of each graduating class at the business school.

He was born in Ghana but has lived and worked in about 10 different African countries.
