For Demo Africa 2012 VC4Africa managed the application process that led to the selection of 40 of the most innovative technology products from companies across the African continent with the opportunity to launch before a global audience of investors, media, strategic buyers, C-level executives and other entrepreneurs.
After DEMO Africa 2012 many of the 40 selected ventures have become rising members of the VC4Africa community. For example m-KAZI closed an investment deal with an angel investor on VC4Africa (read a recent interview) and is presently fundraising for a second round. Also Rasello (read a recent interview) has secured a lead investor and is now fundraising on VC4Africa. MPrep (read a recent interview) appeared in the African Business Review, Sasa Africa went on to win a BiD Network Challenge, and many valuable connections were made.
Now DEMO Africa 2013 is launched we will catch up with some of the DEMO Africa 2012 top 40, and see where they are now. As always we will write updates for Africa’s tech entrepreneurs and investors.
