Join Village Capital for our flagship event in the first hardware accelerator in Africa. The Venture Forum is the culmination of a 3-month workshop and an exciting opportunity to meet face-to-face with entrepreneurs from around the continent who have developed the next generation of “invention-based” hardware solutions that improve access to energy for all and increase agricultural productivity for small-holder farmers. The afternoon will feature pitches from the ventures participating in the VilCap Hardware: Africa 2015-16 program and will include an audience of investors, mentors, potential customers, and members of the greater startup and manufacturing/hardware community.
The forum will be followed by a reception that includes appetizers, drinks and live music for all attendees!! You can’t miss it!
If you have any questions, please contact Mike Kamande at firstname.lastname@example.org
