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.

WHAT OUR ALUMNI SAY


Fantastic opportunity: it goes beyond just professionals who are looking to invest, but also getting professionals who can contribute to start-ups on board, would make the ecosystem that much richer.

Yongama Skweyiya

South Africa


The depth of knowledge and experience packed into the AAA programme is so enriching and responds to the huge gaps in the angel investment culture in the continent. Getting access to top industry professionals who have lived and put real money where their mouths are beats any form of defined learning experience.

Not only have I learnt so much about angel investing, but I am now gathering smart women to create a new angel network for Women in Business in Mauritius.
