About this event

We are hosting Jonathan, an entrepreneur, venture capital analyst, writer, and an expert with a deep understanding of the African startup ecosystem in a virtual fireside chat to discuss startup finances in relation to bootstrapping and fundraising.

We explore what he thinks of either practices in the current market conditions, his work at Benue capital, experience with startups across the continent, including his own, and more.

Join us as we explore how to build for generations to come and share some knowledge of your own, too, during our Q&A session and through the event chat.
