The British Council presents – Entrepreneurial Africa: London Showcase.


Date: 23rd March 2016

Location: CodeNode, 10 South Place, EC2M 7EB, London, United Kingdom



The purpose of the Entrepreneurial Africa Showcase is to allow young African entrepreneurs to connect and make relevant contacts in the London start up community and therefore find potential partners to scale their business with organisations in London in a mutually beneficial way.

The London Showcase will begin with training workshops, followed by open talks with UK entrepreneurs, study tours and will culminate in a wider gathering where entrepreneurs pitches will take place and an opportunity for a panel discussion on innovative approaches to supporting entrepreneurship in Africa.

The London Showcase initiative will enable collaboration between the United Kingdom and Africa. It is also an opportunity for the British Council to share its vision around Entrepreneurship in Africa.
