The annual VC4A Venture Showcase, which enables African entrepreneurs of innovative and disruptive startups and scaleups to present their companies to the most active investors on the continent, is now accepting applications.
The VC4A Venture Showcase Africa alumni have raised over US$630 million since the event’s introduction in 2017, and this year’s edition is searching for firms that are based in Africa, making money, and looking to raise a seed or Series A investment. The Venture Showcase is sector-neutral and focuses on high-impact, high-growth businesses that are bolstering the continent’s economy.
Since the African European Digital Innovation Bridge (AEDIB) and Work in Progress are partners on this year’s edition, there will be four additional tracks in addition to seed and series A, including one each for climate smart agriculture, smart cities, digital trade, and clean technology.
The VC4A Venture Showcase deal room, which has more than 200 early-stage investor organizations, as well as Investor Readiness Training (IRT), mentorship, and technical support from collaborating VC investors and corporates, will be accessible to selected ventures.
The deadline for submissions is May 17.
