Startup Showcases – 15 startups from Kenya, South Africa, and Nigeria have been selected to showcase for investment in our regional events.
You’re invited to join us for the upcoming Startup Showcase events! These events are the final stage of Cohort 7 of the AAA Programme, with participating angels from Kenya, South Africa, and Nigeria. We’ve also opened up the invite to our broader investor community.
The African Angel Academy will be running three startup showcase virtual events (South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria) from 6-8 June 2023. These startups have been nominated by the angel community and partners as high-potential deals to pitch at the showcases.
Startups selected to pitch at these events will also be accompanied by the endorsement from the ecosystem player/angel investor. In the past, the showcase events have proven to be valuable networking and fundraising opportunities for the startups involved.
