Venture Capital in Africa: Tracking Tomorrow's Titans

AVCA’s inaugural Venture Capital (VC) in Africa Summit aims to convene founders, investors, and industry leaders to facilitate thought provoking dialogue, industry-driven insights and unparalleled networking opportunities.

As investor interest and appetite increases for fast-growing markets and sectors, and in turn, the venture capital eco-system matures and contributes to private sector development; our mission at AVCA is ever more pertinent.

The VC in Africa Summit, taking place on Wednesday 24th October 2018 at the Sheraton Grand Park Lane, London, will focus on examining the potential for venture capital investment to act as a catalyst for growth and development of early stage enterprises across the continent. This key industry gathering endeavours to examine the bottlenecks to unlocking the potential of early stage companies and to catalyse the growth of the industry.

AVCA is delighted to host this event in conjunction with the EMPEA's Sustainable Investing in Emerging Markets Summit on Tuesday 23rd October 2018.
