About VC4Africa meetups

Venture Capital for Africa ( is the largest online community connecting African entrepreneurs and investors. Our meetups serve as an additional networking venue where VC4Africa members and supporters meet face to face to share thoughts and ideas. There are no speeches and no agenda which allows for lots of networking and info swapping. Just remember, at VC4Africa meetups everyone is expected to pay for their own drinks ;-)

At the meetups on November 20th we've chosen one central question: "What do you see as actions to take (as an individual or with the wider community) to multiply investments in African startups over the next year?" VC4Africa will collect the output from these discussions across the world. 

Host Maarten van Heems has the following to say on the matter: “I think the three most imminent actions to take for African entrepreneurs and start-ups are to communicate, communicate and communicate about their ideas and ambitions. As loud as possible. For many potential investors in Europe, North America and Asia, the African continent is both an interesting market, and unknown territory. Let’s start by making them acquainted with African energy and creativity and show them how many bright young minds here could take them on an interesting ride.”
