Event Description

AXUM IS:

A digital marketplace, bringing investors, African SME’s and existing founders and business leaders together to create an innovative ecosystem. The goal is to make investing in Africa tangible by accessing a marketplace of verified opportunities and allowing entrepreneurs with limited networks and interact with global investors and business leaders. 

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Should I raise funds 
  • Key materials you need to raise funds 
  • How to engage investors 

CONTEXT

  • In Francophone Africa, 14 startups that have raised $1M or more since 20219, all have made CEO, three quarters of those CEOs and co-founders are not African. 
  • Same transition in the US in Europe drivers higher valuation than in Africa 

Why the Axum Masterclass?

Allow African start-up founders to play in the same league as their American or European counterparts.
