How we support
AfricaBerlin Network (ABN) partners with NGOs, foundations, institutions, universities, businesses and other changemakers who support African and European Ecosystems, with a specific focus on Berlin as the gateway. We work cooperatively to build a bridge among different ecosystems to facilitate networking and building sustainable partnerships.
Market Access Sessions
Through digital sessions, we introduce the different entrepreneurship Ecosystems in our Focus Regions and share expert insights on how to access those markets.
Experts from our network dive deeper into topics such as investment readiness, business expansion and new innovations in a series of diverse workshops.
All digital sessions will be accompanied by networking opportunities to foster exchange between entrepreneurs and experts in the different regions.
Newsletter & Media
Our newsletter and interview series provides updates on everything that’s going on within the Network from our community and partners, offering knowledge on different trends and topics in the ecosystem.
We will organize delegation trips to different hubs. During these trips we connect entrepreneurs with business leaders, makers, investors through an immersive experience in entrepreneurial ecosystems.

Our network includes inspiring and influential businesses, makers, institutions, associations, hubs and accelerators. We compile all their activities, programs and events in one place for you.
