Investor Pitch – Business in Africa with an Impact
April 25th. 2019 in Copenhagen
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 3 Danish, 3 Swedish and 3 Finnish 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 and funding institutions.
