Who WE ARE
Embarking on its seventh year, AfricArena holds a special position, engaging in three vital areas that shape Africa's economic scene: tech startups, corporations, and investors, including angel investors, venture capitalists (VCs), corporate venture capitalists (CVCs), and other institutional investors.
In collaboration with corporations, AfricArena orchestrates open innovation challenges with the goal of uniting these three spheres. The aim is to encourage shared investments and collaboration, propelling the economies and well-being of the continent forward. This approach reflects AfricArena's commitment to fostering a dynamic ecosystem where startups, established companies, and investors join forces for mutual growth and advancement in Africa's economic landscape.
