The 11th edition of Angel Fair Africa (AFA), also known as AFA@11, will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, from November 7-8, 2024.

The event, organized by Chanzo Capital, brings together African entrepreneurs and investors to facilitate business deals.

Dr. James Mworia, Group MD and CEO of Centum Investments Company, will keynote the event. Centum Investments is known for promoting the Two Rivers International Financial and Innovation Center (TRIFIC).

The previous edition of AFA, held in Cape Town, South Africa, resulted in successful deals for startups Mansa Inc, Rivia, and Bosso. These companies have since raised their angel and pre-seed rounds.

Returning to Nairobi marks a significant milestone, as AFA was last hosted in the city in 2016. The late Dr. Chris Kirubi, then Director of Centum, was the keynote speaker at that event, which spotlighted successful entrepreneurs such as Daniel Yu of Wasoko and Sam Wanjohi of Popote Pay.

The event’s return to Nairobi is timely, building on the recent momentum from initiatives like the US-Kenya Silicon Savannah roadshow, the Kauffman Fellows Africa VC Summit, and President William Ruto’s US state visit. These events have highlighted Kenya’s potential as a commercial hub in East and Central Africa and have attracted significant investor interest.
