AAIS 2016 is a crucial gathering for experienced and new investors to hold prescient conversations, sharpen their investing skills, and build the relationships needed for successful co-investment.”

African Angel Investor Summit

This year’s African Angel Investor Summit is titled: “Co-investing, making it work together.” Considering the current economic recession in Nigeria amongst other difficulties faced by other African nations, working together is seen as the only way to unlock capital and maximize Africa’s entrepreneurial potential. For this reason, discussions at the event will be centered around how different players in the ecosystem – angels, venture capitalists, government, academia, corporates, incubators, accelerators, etc can and should co-operate to encourage and produce more successful entrepreneurs in Africa.

Speakers at the event include Rebecca EnonchongMark EssienMaya Horgan-FamoduDotun OlowoporokuNeku Atawodi, and Tayo Oviosu, among others.
