Velogic Collaborates with IAEF for 2nd India-Africa Entrepreneurship and Investment Summit

India and Africa share rich economic, political and socio-cultural relations. These efforts are reflected in strategic initiatives such as ‘Focus Africa’ (2002), the India-Africa Forum Summit (2008), Asia-Africa Growth Corridor (2017), and CECPA (2021) undertaken by both governments. Today, India is Africa’s third-largest trading partner.

Another interesting factor in India-Africa relations that is grabbing global attention is their startup stories. India is the world’s third-largest startup ecosystem and is home to more than 65,861 recognised startups. Industry leaders believe that Africa is at the dawn of the startup revolution. This could be very well true given that African startups raised record-smashing USD 4.3-5 billion in 2021. Both India and Africa are now taking giant mutual strides towards leveraging their respective startup growth. 

Realizing this immense potential, India Africa Entrepreneurship Forum (IAEF) is conducting the 2nd edition of ‘India-Africa Entrepreneurship and Investment Summit’. It will be held on 1st and 2nd July, 2022 at Sarova Panafric Hotel in Nairobi. This event will bring together well-renowned entrepreneurs, investors and industry leaders from India and Africa. The eminent speakers will discuss the opportunities and challenges that Indian startup stakeholders face in investing in Africa. The summit will also pave way for global investors in the African entrepreneurial ecosystem to expand their portfolios in India. It will also foster the exchange of ideas and offer networking opportunities of mutual interest.

One of the growth partners associated with IAEF for this summit is Velogic, a renowned logistic business company and operating as GCS Velogic in East Africa.
