Episode 17: How do you get involve to the economic growth of Africa from the founder of VC4Africa?
10 years ago, Ben White Founded Venture Capital 4 Africa (VC4Africa.com) with a single hope of building an ecosystem of African Entrepreneurs across Africa. Today, VC4Africa have over 36,000 members from all over the world and have assisted over 100 African entrepreneurs across 26 countries to raise over $73 million in 2015.
Ben is originally from New Mexico and he currently resides in Amsterdam; however, I consider him an African because he has contributed to the development of Africa way more than most Africans did.
Ben has tremendous experience of working with African Entrepreneurs across the continent from Dakar to Kigali, as his main goal is to always figure out ways to add value to the African entrepreneur.
In this episode, we chatted about the growth of the African entrepreneurship ecosystem he witnessed and helped build, how do we as Africans in the Diaspora can work with African entrepreneurs, his advice for entrepreneurs, and what motivates him to participate to the development of Africa.
