Join our Crowdfunding African Innovation campaign too!

This year, when signing up to attend this meetup and other VC4Africa Global Entrepreneurship Week Meetups, you have the opportunity to contribute to a crowdfunding campaign for African innovation: we are collecting money in the 'African Startup Fund' for promising entrepreneurs on the VC4Africa platform who are ready to pilot test their innovation and need just a small push to get their innovation into the market.

How to participate in the crowdfunding campaign as a meetup attendee:
When registering your meetup ticket(s) on this page you can choose 'Grab a Free Ticket', and also have the option to select "Contribute to Startup Fund', and fill in an amount. No fees will go to VC4Africa, only the Eventbrite ticket service charges a small fee. Everyone who makes a donation will be listed as the Angel Investors on the African Startup Fund!

How to participate in the crowdfunding competition as an entrepreneur:
If you’re an African entrepreneur ready to pilot test your innovation, be sure to submit your idea and apply! Applications are being collected on and a high level independent selection committee, including investors, will select the most promising application(s) and decide how the money will be allocated. The winner will be announced the week of November 20th. This is the chance to prove your potential and get new partners on board!


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 discussions across the world.
