Bryant Group Africa Mr. Bryant is passionate about the world, but most particularly, the future of the African continent, and is further mesmerized by the rich history and immense talents of the continent’s more than 700 million people. For this reason, and in part inspired by friend and mentor, former UN Ambassador and civil rights icon Andrew Young, the Bryant family has amassed a one of a kind collection of more than 100 collector quality Shona Stone sculptures, most of which are featured through Bryant Group Africa. For the discriminating art lover, Bryant Group Africa offers select pieces for private, corporate or institutional purchase, but in a broader effort to simply expose and educate more of the world to the beauty and talent that is Africa, the company also maintains a policy of providing more than a quarter of its collection on loan, at no cost, to important friends of African culture. Bryant Group Africa pieces on loan can be seen at distinguished locations such as the City Club on Bunker Hill, a leading private business club in downtown Los Angeles, California.
Giving back. Mr. Bryant is also the founder of Operation HOPE, America’s first non-profit social investment banking organization and a global provider of financial literacy and economic empowerment tools and services to low-wealth individuals everywhere. Having served more than one million individuals to date, and operating in 68 U.S. communities and 6 cities in South Africa, Mr. Bryant is committed to giving back, and works to encourage world leaders in business, government and civil society to incorporate a sense of giving back, and "doing good, and doing well too," into everything they do. The Bryant Family Foundation is the Bryant family’s own personal, modest attempt to do even more, making amongst other things, select annual investments in scholarships for deserving young men and women, principally from under-served communities, but excluding no one for consideration. A portion of the proceeds from all Bryant Group related business activities, benefit the Bryant Family Foundation. Welcome to the world of Bryant Group Companies, Inc. Our business is empowerment.
