About VC4Africa meetups:
Venture Capital for Africa (VC4frica.biz) is the largest online community connecting African entrepreneurs and investors. Our meetups serves as an additional networking venue where VC4Africa members and supporters meet face to face to share thoughts and ideas. There are no speeches; no agenda and nothing planned which allows for lots of networking and info swapping. Just remember, at VC4Africa meetups everyone is expected to pay for their own drinks :-)
