The Savannah Fund has partnered with Knife Capital and the University of Cape Town to offer a venture capital (VC) course at the iHub incubator in Nairobi, Kenya, offering startups insights into how to approach seeking funding.
The course will be held on July 29 and 30 at the iHub, and is open to anyone with a vested interest in entrepreneurship and business building, be they entrepreneurs or investors.
“With the rise of entrepreneurship in East Africa, there is a parallel rise in misunderstanding of the role of venture capital, how to pitch to venture capital, how to scale an early-stage high-growth venture, etc,” the organisers said. “So Savannah Fund decided to partner with Knife Capital and the University of Cape Town to bring you: VC Course.”
The organisers said the course would help participants find investment, carry out the investment process, grow their businesses and realise their potential, at the cost of US$1,000 for a corporate and US$350 for a qualifying startup.
“Participants will obtain a number of investment and draft legal templates at the end of the course to take with them. They will also receive a Certificate in Early-Stage Investments from the UCT’s Graduate School of Business,” the organisers said.
