Meet the experts

In June 2022, a group of 11 African ecosystem leaders from Egypt, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa gathered on a trip to be immersed in the Berlin entrepreneurship ecosystem. They explored various ways to build partnerships and collaborate among the five ecosystems. They are an essential part of the foundation of the AfricaBerlin Network.

You need a community to deliver impact.

Expert network

The expert circle contributes to the the network with their own local expertise, they guide us with feedback or help us reach a bigger audience. Since we first came together in Berlin in June 2022, some of the experts have helped us as moderators, organised sessions themselves, met each other and started new initiatives in their respective ecosystems. Partnerships are key and the collaborations are multiplying.
