This is the second in a series of three fireside chats, with a focus on South Africa. The previous session focused on Nigeria, and the next sessions on 9 February 2021 will focus on Kenya. 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.
