About the Brenthurst Foundation
The Brenthurst Foundation is on the frontier of new ideas and innovative actions for strengthening Africa's economic performance. Our activities are focused in three areas: encouraging key decision-makers and experts to share experiences and insights at private meetings and seminars; delivering relevant, practical policy advice to governments; and generating new thinking and thought-leadership to address Africa's development challenges.
At the invitation of African governments, we work in the full spectrum of countries: from those emerging from conflict to those diversifying their economic activities. The Foundation was established with the specific aim to tackle not only the key 'what to do' questions but, in particular, the more difficult challenge of 'how to do it'. Often in collaboration with both African and non-African organisations, the Foundation identifies and shares international best policy practice - then seeks to turn good advice into effective, implementable policy.
