5 May 2021
The Israel-Africa Impact Summit VC Masterclass is an invitation-only event hosted by Tech For Good and IADC that will bring together Israel’s venture capital ecosystem for a one-hour conversation about Africa and its strategic importance to the future of Israeli technology investment.
Africa represents that last billion-person frontier market for Israeli high tech. As technologists begin to pay more attention to the commercial opportunities of human development, security and prosperity in Africa, investors must understand how their portfolio companies should be positioned to take advantage of this immense market opportunities on offer.
