|ABAN is proud to announce a 1-day free Fund Manager Training workshop targeting first-time and aspiring fund managers at the upcoming Africa Early Stage Investor Summit #AESIS2019 (Cape Town, Nov 13-15). This new learning track complements the existing learning track for angel investors and will run in parallel on Wednesday, November 13th – the #AESIS2019 Academy day.|
The training is offered by the AfDB and delivered by JE Austin and Valhalla Capital Management in partnership with AfriLabs. The day will consist of a series of interactive sessions on all essential aspects of fund management. The training will be conducted by some of the most prominent local and international investors and trainers. As part of the AfDB sponsorship, we are able to extend free #AESIS2019 Summit passes to 30 participants of the training. Preference is given to African applicants who can demonstrate their priorities of investing in women- and youth-owned startups and SMEs. Free passes are limited to 30 people only, so please click here to apply ASAP.
As with all #AESIS2019 activities, the location of the Fund Manager Workshop will be Workshop 17 at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. For information on the Africa Early Stage Investor Summit; the agenda, confirmed speakers and more, please visit the #AESIS2019 website, here.
#AESIS2019 Academy Day To help grow the knowledge base for early-stage investing in Africa and create a platform for investors to exchange best practices and share lessons learned, ABAN and VC4A added the Academy Day to the Summit for the first time in 2018. This year, we’re excited to offer a Fund Manager track next to the existing angel investor track.
| Looking forward to welcoming you to beautiful Cape Town in a few weeks time!|
