The African Angel Business Network (ABAN) has announced they’ll be kicking off their 2016 series of Angel Investor Bootcamps and Masterclasses in Kenya on Thursday, August 11, 2016 at Best Western Premier, Nairobi from 2 pm to 5 pm.

The series will focus on facilitating interactions between aspiring angel investors, experienced angel investors, promising high-potential entrepreneurs and other relevant stakeholders in the ecosystem from NGO’s government institutions and the academic world.

Just like last year, Brigitte Baumann will be hosting the Nairobi edition of the ABAN Angel Investor Masterclass. She’s a serial entrepreneur, long time Angel Investor and President Emeritus of the European Business Angel Network (EBAN). Brigitte is also the founder and CEO of Go Beyond Early Stage Investing, and the Chairperson of Global Angel Investing group YPO.

Jasper Grosskurth (MD of Research Solutions Africa, and a board member of VC4Africa) will also be at the Masterclass to share the findings of the Venture Finance in Africa 2016 report about early stage, high growth ventures and the activity of early stage investors in Africa.


This year’s events will be moderated by ABAN board member and Viktoria Ventures co-founder, Stephen Gugu who’s quite prepared. In his words, ”We very much look forward to welcome Brigitte Baumann back to Nairobi. For this years masterclass, we asked Brigitte to prepare a case that will cover the entire investment spectrum from valuation, due diligence, negotiation, post-investment monitoring and finally, exit – and we cant wait to learn from her experience and discuss this amongst the participants.”
