Hey everyone,

Please join me on June 4th for a lively discussion with Mbwana Alliy, managing partner in the $10 million Savannah Fund, on how the rise of cheap entry level smartphones, instant payment system and distribution platforms are changing what "market" means for Africa Tech Startups.

More info and RSVP here:

Also, on May 28th, we'll have Verone Mankou, who launched VMKTech in Congo Brazzaville to introduce the Way-C tablet (the first tablet designed in Africa) and the Elikia smartphone to Central Africa. He'll talk about his challenges in doing a tech startup in Africa - totally without VC funding.

More info and RSVP here:

See you at one or both!
