It's not easy to find a roadmap to angel investing in Africa. The programme offers useful insights and material for learning. The creators and instructors share their knowledge and experience without holding back. Definitely worth every minute spent watching the lessons and investor interviews, participating in the QandAs and masterclasses, and reading the resources (I recommend creating a Google Drive folder to save files and links for further reading shared). Also, connecting with other angel investors from different parts of the world and sharing resources and knowledge is priceless. Have recommended the programme to others in my network. Africa needs more angel investors and this program is definitely a great place to start.
