FOR ANGELS, BY ANGELS

The programme features experienced angel investors from across the African continent, and they share their first-hand experience on sourcing, making, managing and exiting investments in Africa. These experts are featured in the online course’s video modules, and in live masterclasses as part of the cohort programmes.

Since 2020, we’ve trained and networked new angel
investors from across the continent.

The African Angel Academy is not just another online course but an integral part of the growing African angel community. When you complete the course or a cohort programme, you’ll join our alumni network for learning and co-investment opportunities, and to keep updated with ecosystem developments. Many of our alumni have found co-investors, networks and mentors through our community.

WHAT OUR ALUMNI SAY

AAA’s rigorous, case-study based curriculum provided invaluable knowledge in a very effective format including a lot of groupwork and interactions with experienced angel investors.

The cherry on the cake was connecting with like-minded individuals who’ve become trusted co-investors and cherished friends. 

Umulinga Karangwa

Kenya


The AAA programme is a superb opportunity, especially for new angels like me: to better understand the role, the jargon, the risks, the importance of the angel group and network, the steps and what to watch out for.

This programme also features outstanding trainers and carefully selected speakers who share their rich and varied experience of angel investment. I’d recommend it to any new, or even old, business angel.

Nadia Mrabit

Morocco


The entire programme is very well thought through and structured. It speaks to the right things in an effective format and duration, and the webinars and Q&A sessions in between promote connections and engagement.

The guest speakers who were invited for the live sessions were also very inspiring and such a pleasure to listen and learn from.
