Why are you interested in being part of VC4Africa?

There are so many people out there willing to contribute to that Change…so many entrepreneurs who have the ideas to make it come true, and as many investors who believe in that dream, that, as I always say, “you don’t need to be a billionaire to change Africa”…
All you need is one place where all these people can meet and share their ideas; and I think, VC4Africa is that place where “Amazing happens”…

Finance, Product Development, Sales and Marketing, Strategy and Planning

I can also offer the following expertise to the VC4Africa community:

To the entrepreneurs: my strong financial skills and interests for entrepreneurship and business strategy to help them plan and develop their business
