Entrepreneurship for Africans

Promoting & Teaching Entrepreneurship

PAN hosts live and web based (Skype, Facebook Live,) Entrepreneurship events throughout the year. Check out our Events page to check out our upcoming event. Contact Hashim ( ) or Leonard ( ) to partner, sponsor, or inquire about speaking engagements at our Entrepreneurship events.


Civic & Community Engagement

Empowering & Connecting our Communities

African Diaspora from Africa & the Caribbean has increased rapidly in America. PAN is active in empowering and connecting our African communities here in Massachusetts and New England, esp. through providing ways for Community based organizations (CBO'S) and Faith based organizations (FBO'S) to connect.

PAN is currently working on actively engaging the CBO's and African civic activists in Massachusetts to help empower the growing African population in the State. Please contact us to help us build more - Main contacts are Hashim Siraji ( ) and Leonard Tshitenge ( )
