First VC4Africa Meetup in Kampala, Uganda
This past Saturday Jon and I had the pleasure to host the first VC4Africa meetup in Kampala, Uganda. The event was great and I enjoyed getting to meet some of our members in the area. There was a lot of interaction and I think most people walked away with a useful contact or two!
As you know, we are using the BarCamp model – an international network of user generated conferences – open, participatory workshop/events, whose content is provided by participants. What does this mean? It means that any member of VC4Africa.com can organize a meeting in their area whenever they feel there is a need. Simply let us know and we will help promote the gathering via the network. All we ask is that you share some of the experience with the rest of us 🙂
I am pleased to let you know that we have already received interest from members in Johannesburg, Lagos, Silicon Valley, New York and London. I will be working with the different members in the effort to get these events online and will keep you posted on developments!
Interested in bringing together members in your area? Lets see if we can get VC4Africa Meetups across the continent and around the world. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
