AfricaBerlin Network (ABN) forms a collective platform that brings together communities within the startup ecosystems across Africa and Berlin. We enable relationship-building among investors, startups, and bridge builders by organizing workshops, events and delegation trips to Berlin and Africa. ABN supports startups and SMEs in their international expansion and in overcoming the barriers of internationalization. We work together with business leaders, institutions, accelerators, investors, experts and innovators to share information, to connect and to open new doors.

The AfricaBerlin Network aims to support a wide range of sectors through its activities with a particular focus on the following.
