Preparations for Africa's biggest early-stage investment event of the year - the African Angel Investor Summit 2017 - are in full swing (early-bird tickets here). We are excited to showcase the first confirmed speakers (below) who will be joining us in Cape Town on 15-16 November (and for the bonus Cape Town Innovation Tour on the 17th). The Summit programme is work-in-progress and will be communicated over the next weeks. 

Joining #AAIS2017 provides a unique opportunity for you to connect with over 200 of the most influential thought leaders in the early stage investment space and to plug into the African tech startup ecosystem space. We look forward to bring together Africa's early stage investor community to exchange best practices, share lessons learned and plot the roadmap for the future and this edition we are especially proud to work with the World Bank and to showcase the 20 entrepreneurs from the World Bank's XL Africa program
