It was a fantastic 3-day experience when Africa’s early-stage investor community came together mid November for the sixth edition of #AESIS2019.
This exclusive investor-only event, hosted in Cape Town, South Africa, unites the most relevant early stage investors and ecosystem stakeholders from across the continent and beyond, to exchange best practices, network and talk deals.
As event organisers we couldn't be more happy with the outcome of the event and would like to again thank all partners, sponsors, speakers and participants who helped make #AESIS2019 a success. THANK YOU!
