Our Objective

The primary objective of this group is to foster a safer investment environment for entrepreneurial business in Nigeria from the Diaspora and the globe through inter-phasing of both Nigerian private and public sectors with the entrepreneurial and professional disciplines of the membership of NABF.

What We Do

The Forum provides a platform where American based Nigerian professionals and business owners can effectively interact with NABF members and entities at the highest levels of government and the private sector for the mitigation of pitfalls and challenges in business execution in respective regions of Nigeria.


The relationships built within this forum are expected to translate into increased opportunities for inward investment in Nigeria and upward opportunity for its members into American sectors. Members of the forum shall be able to rally their expertise and resources to help other members mitigate risk and foster safer investment strategies into high yield return sectors in Nigerian and American economies.
