This event has been built to bring Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) Entrepreneurs together with Bay Area investors, entrepreneurs, and students interested in engaging with and learning about companies on the African Continent.

We will feature a 30-minute panel discussion about the entrepreneurship and investment networks on the ground and finish with a 30-minute pitch session in which selected companies from GES will have the chance to share and discuss their companies with our panel.

There are a growing number of unicorns in African markets, and many are led by African Entrepreneurs. Attendees will learn more details surrounding these stories and hear and/or receive live feedback on the business models that GES entrepreneurs are pursuing in multiple sectors.

Panelists:

Tim Draper, Founding Partner, DFJ

Eric Osiakwan, Managing Partner, Chanzo Capital 

Maya Horgan-Famodu, Managing Director, Ingressive

David van Dijk, Director General, African Business Angel Network
