Fadilah Tchoumba, ABAN secretary general, Speaks
“These gatherings are designed to create a rich networking experience for investors, and this year we expect more than 200 investor organizations to participate. Moreover, in 2021 we had 13 investor meetups in 11 cities. In November 2022, we will double that number, and we can’t wait to see the growth these conversations will spur,” said Fadilah Tchoumba, ABAN secretary general.
Registration for the Conference
Registration for the local investor seminars can be done via the online portal and will be open to investors in individual countries. Interested participants are urged to book their complimentary ticket as soon as possible. This action is a result of the limitation of space available.
In the schedule for the more significant event, ABAN and VC4A have worked concurrently to jointly facilitate gender inclusivity and a green/climate investment mindset.
