Investor Pitch – Business in Africa with an Impact 
December 12th, 2019 in Oslo
From 1.00 pm – 6.00 pm

Investor pitch by Nordic upcoming businesses in Africa – scale up your business in Africa

At this conference, we invite 7 Nordic scale up businesses to pitch their business to investors, business angels, funding institutions and company leaders already doing successful business in Africa. The company pitches must demonstrate a proven concept ready to scale up in Africa. The pitch duration is 10 min. and there will be plenty of networking breaks in between all pitches. There will be no winner and no judges – all pitching companies will during the day get the change to discuss their business with the present investors, business angels, Impact investors and funding institutions. 

Pitch your scale up business in Africa 

At this conference it´s also possible to book one-to-one meetings with African diplomats and representatives from the African diplomatic corps. 

Coffee, water and snacks will be served during the seminar as we will have many networking breaks (also in between the pitches) enabling you to discuss and share experiences.
