Magatte Wade was born in Senegal, educated in Germany and France, and launched her entrepreneurial career in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she co-founded Adina World Beverages, a multi-million dollar beverage company that sells culturally authentic beverages from diverse nations around the world, after working closely with Silicon Valley start-ups. Magatte left the multimillion dollar company this year to pursue a deeper purpose, the flourishing and re-branding of Senegal. She is convinced that just as Asia has become a hit with fashion and design, it is now Africa’s time. She exclaims, “Not the Africa of low quality products, nor the Africa of cute little tribal peoples growing crops and producing crafts, the way self important aid advocates like Jeffrey Sachs and other do-gooders who love to campaign on behalf of foreign aid for the poor see the continent, but a proud, globally competitive Africa.” Thus, Magatte is currently launching her second company, The Tiossano Tribe, Inc., a lifestyle brand initially focused on fashion accessories and body care products targeted at the cultural creative demographic. Ms. Wade is fluent in, and conducts business in, Wolof, the predominant indigenous language of Senegal, French, and English.
