Update VC 4 Africa Community

As many of you know, the VC 4 Africa community was started in July 2008.
I am pleased to report that the community now includes members from 25 countries.

In the effort to further support members a number of new services and programs have been launched.
As always, I invite your invaluable feedback and participation.

Where is the VC 4 Africa community ?

The VC 4 Africa community now exists on several complimentary platforms.
All of these tools are free and open for anyone to use – a principle idea behind this initiative.

LinkedIn – A platform for networking and exchanging business contacts

VC Africa Community – A social platform for posting articles, events, forum and discussion

VC Africa Community Incubators – Groups dedicated to country specific discussion, topics, events and projects

VC Africa on Twitter – A tool for tracking the communities developments and its members

Promote your projects !

If you have a project you would like to present to the group please forward your powerpoint presentation to vc4africa@gmail.com.

These presentations will be profiled for the group and attached to relevant discussion boards. Members can then see where they might have an interest to cooperate or support your activities.

Exchange links

Would you like to have your organization, website or weblog listed to the home page of the VC Africa website ? Let me know and I will be happy to exchange links. E-mail vc4africa@gmail.com.

Improve your profiles !

If you have a moment please come back and update your profile. It only takes a few minutes but can make a big difference. Your profile is a landing page for entrepreneurs and investors. The more you develop your profile the more other members can find ways to work with you. Also, please add a profile picture as we are working to keep the community personal. Spend 2 minutes

What is the plan moving forward ?

The aim of the project is to create an open and free platform for finding and sharing information. A place for entrepreneurs and investors to come together and share ideas. As the project develops, the hope is that the continent’s best entrepreneurs and projects come forward. It is up to the community to embrace these individuals in the effort to realize each project’s potential. If anyone has an interest in pushing this process forward please feel free to contact me with thoughts, ideas or suggestions.

Happy networking !
