About Us

Certified Africa is a company with the mission of influencing the African Diaspora to connect, do business on the African Continent and share their entrepreneurial talents while contributing meaningfully to the development of Africa. 

IKristin is an attorney and entrepreneur and Nii Armah Quaye is a financial services professional, motivational speaker and entrepreneur. We are a husband and wife team who are redefining “bleisure” (business and leisure travel) to the African Continent.”
After meeting in Ghana in 2016 and traveling the country together, we later got married and started Certified Africa.

Certified Africa was inspired by our vision to see the African Diaspora and Africans in Africa actively contributing to the growth and development of the African Continent.

  • Identify how your passion can contribute meaningfully to development in Africa.

  • Teach you about business opportunities and industries in African that you and other like-minded entrepreneurs can invest in.
