The AIEC-EAL Partnership supports the 7th edition of The African Entrepreneurs Conference 2020 which will be held virtually on the 26th and 27th of November this year.

This investments Conference is a globally recognised event attracting the highest quality speakers in global leadership, successful entrepreneurs across the globe, technocrats, investors, incubators, accelerators, corporates, academia and regulatory authorities to discuss business-related topics on how to address Africa’s entrepreneurship and investments solutions to help poverty alleviation and job creation in the continent.

The Conference provides an excellent opportunity for African entrepreneurs to network with highly skilled speakers, sector specific mentors, policy-makers and investors. The participants will benefit from access to financial institutes, equity investors and venture capitalists, insight on potential ventures suitable for a business ecosystem, insight on how to expand customer base and provides the opportunity to be a Global Venture.

His Excellency President C Ramaphosa of South Africa, Pauline Christian former Black Business Council President and currently the CEO/President Best Lifestyle Residents INC, Canada, are among some of the thought leaders who will grace this conference.

A virtual incubation support system to the budding entrepreneurs of Africa will be provided after the Conference as a sustainability approach.

As per multiple studies, 80% startups fail within 18 months at global level, due to lack of mentoring support, lack of readiness of startups for investment, lack of access to investors and other key stakeholders of the startup ecosystem. AIEC has a vision to create world-changing startups like Uber, Airbnb, Amazon  in Africa through the virtual incubation support system. The incubation support will have 3 phases. During the first stage, the startups will enter a mentoring programme on idea generation and validation. This stage follows a period on MVP & Product Development andIPR Support The third phase support boot camp training and pitch deck formulation.
