Event: Post COVID-19 African Angel Investment Landscape Forecast

Event Review

Event Description

COVID-19 is expected to impact heavily on the global economy with many analysts forecasting a major recession ahead. 

According to the World Bank’s Africa’s Pulse, Sub-Saharan Africa region will see economic growth reverse and plunge to between -2.1% to as low as -5.1% this year due to the COVID-19 global crisis. The region will fall into its first recession for 25 years, compared with 2.4% growth last year.

How would this affect the African Angel Investment Landscape which had begun to see an increase in activities (both in terms of network launches and deals)? 

The SSE Angel Network is convening some of Africa’s most active Angel Investors in a virtual conference to discuss the Post COVID-19 African Angel Investment Landscape.
