On June 7th 2011 40 members came together for the second VC4Africa meet-up event to be organized in Belgium.
This was a networking session that brought together a wide range of entrepreneurs, private and public sector investors, VC experts and other Africa-focused investment players. The community discussed many business ideas, exchanged business cards and shared valuable networking opportunities.
Amilcar v/d Horst @amilcarvdh tweeted, ‘Yesterday Networked in Brussels with @VC4Africa in Dutch, French and English. Was a great success. #Africa #Ghana #Winning’ cvs_congo tweeted, ‘#VC4Africa in #Brussels http://wp.me/phiYw-ya”: It pleased me to chat with a young diaspora promoter going back to Congo in August!’ And so each member walked away with new contacts and ideas.
Special thanks goes to VC4A members Chantal Kamatari, Vincent Okele and Oscar Kombila. Also a special thanks goes to BelAfrika for their wonderful photos and on-site media coverage!
