Description

The African Investor Masterclass

Nairobi 04 May 2019


How To Raise Capital From The Diaspora

The African Investor Masterclass is a series of business and investment training seminars. After successful events in Germany, The Netherlands and Switzerland the African Investor Masterclass is finally coming to East Africa. This is a premium networking event that connects business leaders in Africa with their counterparts in the diaspora, to facilitate joint-ventures and business/ investment opportunities.

As an early-stage business, you need access to capital in order to compete both locally and globally. At the African Investor Masterclass, we’re helping your African startup or SME to close the funding gap ($ 50,000 - $ 250,000) by enabling you to access much needed capital from Africans in the diaspora.

“People invest in people they trust. People trust people who look like them.”

The number of local investors in Africa is still very low, while the majority of angel investors and venture capitalists are foreign. The only sustainable way to increase access to capital is to increase the number of local and diaspora investors.

We're convinced that Africans have the potential to create employment in Africa by either starting or investing in African businesses. The African Investor Masterclass is building an ecosystem - The African Investor.CLUB, to support African businesses and provide returns to those who invest in them.

Take Your Business To The Next Level - Go Global!

At this masterclass you’ll learn;

  • Fundraising: how to raise capital from the diaspora. Fund your business growth and take your startup to the next level.
  • Investment: how to make your startup Investor-Ready. What Africans in the diaspora look for when investing in a business.
  • Market Entry: how to access the EU market. Form strategic partnerships, joint-ventures or even register a subsidiary with a virtual office in the EU.
  • Bonus: get a chance to join The African Investor.CLUB - an exclusive global network of African business leaders and investors.

The information provided at this masterclass will empower you, The African Investor/ Entrepreneur, to scale your business interests locally and globally.

Use this opportunity to take your business to the next level, network with like-minded people and invest in yourself. Information is KING!
