ABOUT US

We advocate for economic growth and development by connecting opportunities to people and places across the globe. GLAD is a 501(c) 3, organization with headquarters in Missouri, USA and as a LTD/GTE in Nigeria. An innovative and independent platform that is passionate for the advocating of economic growth and people’s development using Technology, Agriculture, Business and any other means to address the biggest challenges of our time to shape a better future advancing development inline with the UN SDGs.

We promote the attractiveness of Nigeria and Africa to the world business
communities, investors and startups with interest in expansion to Africa or vizavis. As advocates, our core focus is in the following sectors; Real Estate,
 Agriculture and Technology, which we achieve through an environmental friendly lens, to impact positively on climate change.

When breaking into a new international market, it helps to have a soft landing
working with people on ground; this GLAD knows how to do well.
GLAD helps companies, startups, government and individuals do business with Africa, and navigate the system in Africa, leading to more leads, more revenue, and more impacts.

We are of the opinion that overall economic growth is primarily about total
prosperity while inequality, middle-class stagnation, poverty, and limited mobility are about lack. It is clear that making more local communities more prosperous is the only and sustained solution to eradicating poverty in the world.

In clear terms, if we must free our continent and the world of poverty by 2030
and beyond, then we must equip everybody with business acumen and other
critical and relevant skills to create solutions to our numerous problems in a
sustained businesses manner.

It’s on the above background that GLOBAL ADVOCATES for DEVELOPMENT, GLAD was borne to support Businesses, inter regional organization growth, the people at the bottom of the pyramid struggling and hustling to survive, especially women, the youth and people with disabilities in various grassroots, communities, villages and slums by connecting them with a credible business that will provide sustainable economic growth.
