Connecting Africa's Early Stage Investor Community

ABAN is on a mission to dramatically grow the number of investors who support and fund promising African entrepreneurs. We want to quantum leap early stage investing in Africa by providing the support, networking opportunities and essential resources to Africa focused investors and informal investor networks.

It gives us great pleasure to share more information about our upcoming Annual Summit, as well as the Masterclasses we have in store for the rest of the year.

Africa’s early stage investor community gathers on 15-16 November (+ a bonus Cape Town Innovation Tour on the 17th) for the 4th annual African Early Stage Investor Summit. This exclusive investor-only event, hosted in Cape Town, South Africa, unites key stakeholders in the ecosystem to exchange best practices, share lessons learned and plot the roadmap for the future.

BONUSWe will also be showcasing the entrepreneurs from the World Bank's XL Africa accelerator program!!
Joining #AAIS2017 provides a unique opportunity for you to network with the most influential thought leaders in the early stage investment space and to plug into the African tech startup ecosystem. Learn and exchange knowledge with a network of top investment experts and exchange best practices with like-minded investors.

ABAN Masterclasses are highly interactive events aimed to mobilize the early stage investing community and get more investors excited about opportunities across the region. Events such as these are critical for raising the profile of early stage investing. The majority of Masterclasses this year are supported by the Work in Progress! Alliance.
