Lisa, an active member for some time now, organized a VC4Africa Meetup in Norfolk. This is the start of setting up a community in her area dedicated to building sustainable businesses in Africa. Next meetup she aims to double the participation, with each member bringing a friend or colleague, and growing the network this way.
The first VC4Africa Meetup was held at Katch the Sun in Kampala, Uganda on June 30th, 2009. We had about 25 members show up and spent several hours networking and getting to know more about one another!
The energy and enthusiasm for this meeting really tapped into this idea that we should be connecting anywhere and everywhere people want to come together and talk about all of the opportunities and possibilities in Africa.
The VC4Africa meetup concept was born and we have now seen members take similar initiatives across the world. As of 2011 more than 25 meetups have been organized and counting….
