Africa Early Stage Investor Summit 2018
November 11, 2018
Africa’s early stage investor community convenes on November 11th and 12th for the 5th Africa Early Stage Investor Summit. This exclusive investor-only event, hosted at Workshop17 in Cape Town, South Africa, and organised by VC4A and the African Business Angels Network (ABAN), unites key ecosystem stakeholders from across the continent and beyond, to exchange best practices, learn from peers and recent transactions, and do deals.
The Summit’s speakers and guests represent angel networks, impact funds, leading accelerators, corporate venture arms, industry associations, and public sector agencies. The 2017 edition has been the biggest to date for the Africa Early Stage Investor Summit, with over 300 delegates attending and almost all major African angel networks and VC funds represented. This year’s 5th-anniversary event promises to further raise the bar, featuring renown guests and also kicking off the whole week of startup industry events in Cape Town.
The Summit will encompass VC4A Venture Showcase – Series A, featuring investor-vetted scale-ups from across the continent looking to raise between $250K and $5M.
