African Business Angel Network (ABAN) plans to facilitate a Series of Angel Investor Boot camps in a bid to mobilize the African Angel investing community. ABAN is organizing these boot camps with support from the LIONS Africa Partnership and the US State Department. The boot camps will be held in Lagos, Cape Town, and Nairobi.
The series of boot camps will have the theme: ‘Unlocking capital for early stage innovation’. They will be geared towards facilitating the mingling and networking of aspiring and seasoned angel investors with promising entrepreneurs among other key stakeholders. ABAN hopes also to incorporate lessons learned from these series of boot camps into its Investor Summit that will be held at the DEMO Africa on September 23rd in Lagos, Nigeria.
ABAN hopes to use the series of boot camps to connect the network of angel investors, share knowledge and pool capital needed to support Africa innovation. Thus, maximize the potential of the continent’s entrepreneurial growth. The exact date and location for the boot camps will be announced via the ABAN website: www.abanangels.org
