Inaugural India Africa angel investors summit to take place next month

The first India Africa Entrepreneurship & Investment Summit will take place next month in Mauritius — with a heavyweight list of speakers already confirmed.

The summit, scheduled to take place from 16 to 18 August, will be hosted by the India-Africa Economic Forum in partnership with the India Angels Network (IAN) and the Africa Business Angels Network (ABAN) and with the support of the Economic Development Board of Mauritius.
