Welcome! Ndewo! Nnoo! to the official Umu Igbo Unite Page! Umu Igbo Unite (UIU) works to connect, convene, and empower the next generation of Igbo professionals through networking opportunities and cultural exchange to preserve the Igbo heritage. Founded in 2005, UIU is a culturally rich and dynamic organization with over 800 members globally and over 5,000 in our network spanning various industry areas nationwide. Thank you for visiting and we look forward to having you join us in our movement!

Professional Networking with a Cultural Twist!


The Igbo culture involves rich customs, practices and traditions. Umu Igbo Unite works to bring people together to create a forum to discuss the preservation and evolution of the Igbo culture. Without knowledge, reflection, immersion and history – this effort would not be possible.


Umu Igbo Unite brings like minded professionals, entrepreneurs, artists and college students together in order to recognize, create and act upon business, creative and professional opportunities. Networking, essential to invidual and professional growth, is the crux of the UIU experience.


The saying goes “it takes a village to raise a child.” We believe that it takes a village to raise a child, effect change, and create unshakable bonds. Through our annual convention, chapters, sponsors and service to our community, UIU works to create, build and strengthen social networks and bonds.

My husband and I met at the UIU Happy Hour in Houston, TX.


I’m really happy that Nigerian organizations which were created to promote culture, community service, and leadership are also producing inadvertent connections. A friend of mine decided last minute to attend the 2014 Umu Igbo Unite convention, though she was moving to another state that same weekend. While at the convention, she happened to meet a nice young man that lived in the state she was moving to. A year and some change later they got engaged yesterday!! Umu Igbo Unite is producing marriages left and right! I also happened to meet my hubby at a UIU convention years before I was even considering marriage. Shout out to UIU for all the great things you do for the community (including unintentional matchmaking :-))


Because of UIU, I have been able to connect with my lost culture and my people, for which I found my girlfriend.
