This is the first in a series of three fireside chats, starting with a focus on Nigeria, with sessions on South Africa and Kenya following on 8 and 9 February 2021 respectively. KTN, in partnership with Co-Creation Hub, iHub and Tshimologong Precinct, has curated a series of fireside chats to discuss the challenges and solutions for early-stage investors in Africa’s technology ecosystems. The series of fireside chats will be held in two strands, the first focussing on early-stage investments and the second engaging later-stage investors based on outcomes of the first strand. These 90-minute sessions will feature conversations between early and late-stage investors, as well as technical experts working in innovation funding and finance in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. Participants can submit questions ahead of time.
