What are investors looking for in African start-ups

What are Investors Looking for in African Start-Ups from Jonathan Marks on Vimeo.

This is the first in a series of pilot videos made for the African entrepreneurs platform VC4Africa.biz. During a recent brainstorm meeting in Amsterdam, I talked to several investors asking them what they were looking for in start-ups. Some of the best answers came from Sean Murphy, who runs Chembe Ventures.

Would be interested in members feedback on this pilot item from a recent VC4Africa meeting in Amsterdam. I notice in my travels that many entrepreneurs don’t know what investors are looking for in their business. In this video I talked with participants of the brainstorm meeting. Hope it is helpful and that it starts conversations.
