The Hub sponsored and participated in the 4th Angel Fair Africa event, held in Nairobi, Kenya from November 10 - 11. The event attracted 45 global investors to hear pitches from 20 curated startups and scale-ups from eight African countries. The Hub curated the entreprenuers, helped them to pitch, and brought in the investors. The event has already yielded three deal announcements, with a number of other ongoing discussions.
500 Startups Founder Dave McClure, who gave the final keynote, said: “It was terrific to meet the growing community of angels and VCs investing in Africa, as well as some great new African startups.”
