The AAA Intro to Angel Investing online course is available for anyone to buy and start learning immediately, at your own pace. We’ve also developed an additional module for those looking to invest with a syndicate. You’ll still receive news and invites from AAA, as a part of our alumni community. 

JOIN A COHORT PROGRAMME

AAA runs (sponsored or part-sponsored) regional cohort programmes with our partners 2-3 times a year. Successful applicants join a group of other emerging angels for networking, live masterclasses and investor Q&A’s; while working through the AAA Angel Investing Foundations online course. 

ONLINE COURSE LEARNING JOURNEY

 

The AAA Angel Investing Foundations online course is a 13-module virtual learning experience that introduces the full angel investing process, from an African perspective. It includes lecture-style videos, interviews with some of the continent’s leading angels, additional templates and resources, as well as virtual discussions.

The Syndication Module has been developed as the first of AAA’s Active Angel Series addon modules, for those looking to start investing as a syndicate.

The on-demand format was great as it enabled me to complete the programme at my own pace irrespective of my tough schedule. The additional materials were very helpful. Thank you to the fantastic facilitators and admin. I am really glad I had the opportunity to be a part of this cohort. Worth every minute spent on the programme.

The programme provided the right mix of asynchronous self learning via the online platform and synchronous engagements through a mixture of masterclasses, workshops, Q&A sessions, networking events and showcases. I think spreading it over the period it was delivered was correct to allow busy cohort members to engage and complete in a timeframe that suited them.
