TeleskopEffekt Startup Hub Werkzeugkasten - Opportunities in the Exciting African Startup Scene
15.10.2021 | 11:00 - 12:30 Uhr | Region online
The online seminar „Opportunities in the Exciting African Startup Scene,“ which is part of the TeleskopEffekt Startup Hub Werkzeugkasten series, is giving us the chance to get some interesting insights into the dynamic startup scene across the African continent.
Most people look at Silicon Valley as the pivot point of successful startups, yet there is another, maybe not as much known of, emerging and promising startup scene in Africa. While venture capital and infrastructure might still be lacking somewhat behind, inspired entrepreneurs are not to be stopped.
Some of these tireless and determined self-starters share their knowledge with us during this digital get-together. They give a broad overview of what is happening in different parts of the continent and share valuable insights with us. Some of them have valued business connections in Germany, which they will elaborate on. Overall, this seminar will help you to learn more about various chances of bringing your business abroad and you will have plenty of time to ask questions and network.
