Workshop Organizer

The African Business Angel Network (ABAN) is a pan African non-profit association founded to support the development of early stage investor networks across the continent and to get many more (early stage) investors excited about the opportunities in Africa.

ABAN seeks to promote a culture of Angel investing across Africa. There are networks emerging across the continent, but there is not yet a conversation in place that connects them. ABAN aims to drive and nurture this converstation. In turn, ABAN seeks to further build the industry and improve the climate for startup entrepreneurs.

ABAN began as a consortium of independent investor networks including the Lagos Angels Network (LAN), Cameroon Angel Network (CAN), Ghana Angel Network (GAIN), Venture Capital for Africa (VC4Africa), Silicon Cape and supported by the European Business Angel Network (EBAN), the LIONS Africa Partnership and DEMO Africa. In the interest to connect these African networks, support new investors and new networks, to maximize their impact and to connect African investors to their global counterparts, the need was established to form a pan-African association of angel investor networks and other early stage investors: ABAN.

The Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC) represents the largest member network of Africa-focused companies. This elaborate network has proven invaluable for start-ups to expand their network and increase their know-how. Alternatively, many NABC Members find synergy and common goals within start-ups and draw inspiration from them. This has led to a new start-up friendly membership fee for companies up to three years old: 325,- excl. VAT.  For more information contact: Daan.vreeburg@nabc.nl.
