In this episode active angel investors from across the African continent share regional insights on investing in tech start-ups.

Moderated by Tomi Davies from Lagos Angel Network (LAN) this panel recorded at Africa Tech Summit Connects uncovers how local angel investors and syndicates are driving much needed investment in local tech start-ups and providing returns for angel investors highlighted by Stripes acquisition of Paystack and returns of 100X for early stage investors from the LAN syndicate.

The episode unpacks deal flow, how new investors are getting involved, regional insights, the bridge between VCs and angel groups, and why angel investing is more than simply providing cash to start-ups to deliver real returns.
