Relive the Africa Early Stage Investor Summit 2020
VC4A and ABAN are looking back at a successful edition of the 7th and virtual edition of the Africa Early Stage Investor Summit (#AESIS2020). The Summit took place on 3 & 4 November online. With a number of record-level deals making the headlines over the last year, Africa’s startup industry is ripe for investment. During the two-day virtual Summit, we came together, interacted and collaborated on deals – to invest in a resilient Africa.
AESIS is ‘for investors, by investors’. To ensure this investor community is able to connect and continue important discussions during these unprecedented times, VC4A and ABAN offer investors the opportunity to join free of charge. You are welcome to invite your networks, but keep in mind the Summit is investor-only.

Participating investor organizations
VC4A Venture Showcase
VC4A is excited to see the Venture Showcase becoming a great example of true industry collaboration. The vetting process is fully undertaken by our partnering external investors, where these organizations refer their portfolio companies ready for the next round. These investors then assess the opportunities and ultimately decide who will appear on the virtual #AESIS2020 stage.
Investor participation has been outstanding this year, with 70+ major VCs and multiple angel groups and leading accelerators involved in the process. We believe initiatives like this help to build trust and foster collaboration between industry stakeholders, and importantly, create both co-investment opportunities and exit opportunities for our partners.
The selected companies for the VC4A Venture Showcase Series A and Seed program can be reviewed below. And the founders will showcase their businesses online during the Africa Early Stage Investor Summit 2020. Make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to meet the founders and reach out to them if you want to learn more.
