After a successful 3rd Angel Fair Africa in Accra, Ghana last year, Angel Africa List and Chanzo Capital are bringing the 4th edition to Nairobi, Kenya. In November 2016, 100 investors and entrepreneurs from within and outside Africa will descend on Africa’s “most intelligent city” to do deals at the 4th Angel Fair Africa. 

Investors would be coming from Angel Africa List, East Africa Angel Network, Ghana Angel Investor Network, Lagos Angel Network, New Generation Angels, African Private Equity and Venture Capital Association, East Africa Venture Capital Association and Angel Capital Association. 

This year, a partnership with Village Capital would allow the event to experiment with their peer selection model which would result in Chanzo Capital making investments in peer selected ventures that would go through a pre-event workshop which would bring selected entrepreneurial businesses from Pivot East, Seedstars World, Demo Africa and previous Village Capital workshops. The entrepreneurial ventures would pitch during the event, giving investors the opportunity to prioritize those they wish to meet. In the afternoon, attendees will circulate to meet entrepreneurs in order to explore investment, business development and other types of deals. There will also be investors’, entrepreneurs’ and “exists” panel discussions to share light on experiences and trends.

Angel Fair Africa (AfA) has been making the rounds in the KINGS countries of Kenya, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa (KINGS). KINGS is a term coined by Eric M.K Osiakwan similar to the Asian Tigers’ concept to represent the countries leading the emergence of Africa’s Digital Economy. The event has been held in South Africa, Nigeria, and Ghana with Kenya this year.
