About VC4Africa meetups
Venture Capital for Africa (VC4Africa.biz) 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 Yemisi Akinbobola thinks the following: "I would begin with networking. Meeting people, know what they are doing, share what you are doing, and give room for collaboration. My industry, online journalism, and many emerging industries in Africa, is not an area that has been easy to get investment for from African investors, and I would be taking steps to raise the profile of online journalism and to 'educate' potential investors about the potentials the industry holds."
