VC4Africa believes entrepreneurship development in Africa can be accelerated when we are able to connect a global network of knowledge and capital. As part of this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week (November 18th – 24th), the community initiates a global conversation on African entrepreneurship on Thursday November 21.
Members from around the globe are taking the initiative to host a meetup in their own town on Thursday November 21. These informal networking meetings bring together local networks of entrepreneurs, angels and VC investors eager to be part of the continent’s next great success story. These local meetups are also a chance for engagement, otherwise the individuals who have yet to get involved in the African entrepreneurship ecosystem in a meaningful way.
Meetups have been confirmed in over 20 cities, all over the world including: Accra, Addis, Alexandria, Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Cairo, Chicago, Johannesburg, Kampala, Lagos, Lille, London, Los Angeles, Nairobi, New York, and Silicon Valley. Full list of meetup cities can be found and registered for here.
