Acceleration and Investor-Readiness in Africa

Investing in Africa’s future at EOM

The African startup conference was created to catalyze measures to support and invest in African entrepreneurs so that they can grow and develop their businesses. EOM thus serves as a linking point between enablers, startups, investors, and policymakers. Targeted actions could be derived from the discussions, masterclasses, and workshops. Read about the measures discussed at the conference.


We gave business support to startups at the AfricaVSVirus challenge in 2020 to promote and high-lighted the most promising initiatives during these challenging times. Proud to be mentoring. Read on.
