The 3rd annual Angel Fair Africa, where 50 investors/visionaries from within and around Africa will convene to listen to pitches, and possibly conduct business, will hold on November 5, 2015 at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Ghana.

The event is organised by the Angel Africa List featuring investors from Ghana Angel Investor Network, New Generation Angels, African Private Equity & Venture Capital Association, Angel Capital Association and it is supported by Dimension Data, Chanzo Capital, Interpay, Servled and African Entrepreneurs Hub.

Businesses from Pivot East, Seedstars World and Demo Africa will be given the opportunity to pitch, and prospective investors given the opportunity to select the founders they wish to meet. Later on, there will be a network session of sorts, where attendees will circulate to explore investment and business development deals, as well as various panel-type sessions to shed light on experiences and trends in the business space.

KINGS Countries, as coined by Eric M.K. Osiakwan (Angel Fair Africa’s Co-founder), referring to Kenya, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa, will spearhead the emergence of Africa’s Digital Economy. This explains in part, the choice to host the AFA event in Jo’Burg (South Africa), Lagos (Nigeria), and now Accra (Ghana), which has resulted in a few significant deals.

The Accra event follows the Africa Technology Summit from 3rd to 4th November 2015, bringing investors from around Africa, Europe and the United States. According to a Venture Burn article, the Accra startup scene is fast joining the Nairobi and Lagos scenes as vanguards in Africa’s economic development.
