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.

It’s not easy to find a roadmap to angel investing in Africa. The programme offers useful insights and material for learning. The creators and instructors share their knowledge and experience without holding back. Definitely worth every minute spent watching the lessons and investor interviews, participating in the Q&As and masterclasses, and reading the resources.
