Opportunity for East London Entrepreneurs

Opportunity for East London Entrepreneurs


Between 28 and 30 May, East London is hosting this global forum aimed at the needs of African entrepreneurs and innovators.

Entrepreneurs will be able to engage with business leaders, specialised networks, and take part in learning sessions on mobile, climate, agribusiness innovation and incubation.

Enter the Dragon’s Den

The forum will incorporate a Dragon’s Den session, at which high-potential entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to meet mentors, investors and angels. The goal is to bring together promising entrepreneurs from Africa and other developing regions in a competition setting.
