Second to networking online, VC4Africa makes use of the Barcamp model for events and organizes its own VC4Africa Meetups, otherwise informal networking events initiated by any member in the network interested in bringing together members in their own area. Events have already been hosted in Kigali, Kampala, Nairobi (2x), Johannesburg, Lagos, Tunis, San Francisco, Atlanta, Washington DC, New York, London, Leuven, Dakar and Amsterdam.
On February 15th 2011, VC4Africa aims to double the number of hosted meetups. We will organize 15 events that will take place on the same day in 15 different countries. Our own Africa Entrepreneurship Day of sorts, otherwise a celebration of the entrepreneurs and the ideas that have the power to transform the continent.
