Startup Showcases – 15 startups from South Africa, Kenya, 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 the current UK Government’s International Tech Hub Network sponsored programme with participating angels from Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria and the United Kingdom; and we’ve decided to open 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 25 – 27th of January 2022. These startups have been nominated by angel community and partners in the regional countries 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. Information about startups will be made available prior to the events. In the past, the showcase events have proven to be valuable networking and fundraising opportunities for the startups involved.
