About MEDA Convention 2021

In the complex and unstable environment of the pandemic, we’ve all faced difficult situations that forced us to adapt and become resilient. But for communities already struggling against the odds, COVID-19 has upended local economies, plunging 130 million people into extreme poverty.

It’s time to not only think about building back stronger but more sustainably, together

Connecting people to share resources, knowledge and access to opportunities is what MEDA is all about; partnering together with governments, institutions, and private supporters to ensure equal opportunities exist for entrepreneurs in the global south. Partner with us as we work towards a future where entrepreneurs everywhere are equipped and empowered to thrive in business.

On November 5-6, MEDA supporters, business professionals, and international economic development experts from around the globe will join together for a time of reflection, learning and inspiration.

This well-anticipated annual event brings together a community of individuals passionate about the intersection of business, faith, and philanthropy. With four streams of programming to choose from—business + faith, international economic development, business issues and professional development—there is a place for everyone at MEDA Convention.

Join us as we celebrate being together virtually again.

Attendees can:

  • Hear how MEDA has helped stem the tide of the worst effects of the pandemic for hardworking people around the globe so that they can fulfill their God-given potential to earn a livelihood.
  • Learn how their support has empowered our clients and partners to lift themselves, their families, and their communities out of poverty.
  • Meet business professionals like you who are guided by their faith and values and know the importance of collaboration to build a global community where all can thrive.
  • Connect what they do locally with MEDA’s global work to create business solutions to poverty.
