TIDE Africa is the first international venture capital fund focused exclusively on technology enabled services and innovation for Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) across all stages of the venture capital cycle. They focus on equity investments into fast growth entrepreneurs and companies leveraging technology and innovation to serve the SSA market, with the potential to scale globally and the ability to profitably serve low income customers at the Base of the economic Pyramid (BoP), as this remains the vast majority of consumer demand in the region and in other developing economies. 

During this event, TLCOM TIDE Africa Team (Andreata and Maurizio) will tell us more about funds available for Africa Startups and what they will be looking out for as investors. 

This event is for you, if you're looking for funding for your startup.
