Dear ABAN Member,

The entire ABAN Team would like to wish you the very best for 2018, with success in all of your investments. This year, we are looking forward to further supporting Africa's early stage investor community and helping to fund and support as many promising African entrepreneurs as we possibly can. We believe the year 2018 is shaping up to be a seminal year for ABAN, entrepreneurship and early-stage investing in Africa. Lets do this!
