WeNetworkNow (WNN) was created to address the challenges that have existed in our respective communities for ages. For instance, lack of collaboration, culture exchange, information sharing, networking, and mentorship, just to name a few. To that end, WNN was conceptualized in June of 2018 to address the aforementioned challenges.
After a year of candid interviews and surveys to ensure WNN meets the needs of its communities and members, it became a welcome and enthusiastic initiative on December 4th, 2019 in Saint Louis Park, Minnesota, where Mamady Konneh, founder and current Executive Director, shared the mission, vision, and value of the organization to over three (3) dozens of African professionals. Due to the overwhelming enthusiasm, WNN organized its first formal event on Saturday, January 4th, 2020 – and more than three dozen African professionals from every region of Africa were in attendance.
