Economic development through market-creating innovation

Hosted by Ventures Platform, the Africa Prosperity Summit is an invite-only summit for investors, venture fund managers, family offices, DFIs, and fund of funds who are investing in Africa.

At the heart of our work at Ventures Platform is a commitment to facilitating the prosperity of African nations. We believe that investing in market-creating innovations can serve as a catalyst for enabling sustained economic development, which in turn can create jobs, profits, and returns, while also lifting nations out of poverty.

The Africa Prosperity Summit as an extension of our work and collaboration with ecosystem players like you. We aim to facilitate meaningful conversations and actions toward innovation-driven prosperity in Africa.


“As an African venture capitalist, I shouldn’t be satisfied with investing in incremental changes that move the needle. My primary job is to find and fund market-creating innovations that will revolutionise entire industries and drive the prosperity of nations.”
