In lead to a business conference focused on doing business in Africa (at the University of California at Los Angeles - UCLA), Patrick Terry stepped forward in the effort to organize the first VC4Africa Meetup in Santa Monica.
The first VC4Africa Meetup was held at Katch the Sun in Kampala, Uganda on June 30th, 2009. We had about 25 members show up and spent several hours networking and getting to know more about one another!
The energy and enthusiasm for this meeting really tapped into this idea that we should be connecting anywhere and everywhere people want to come together and talk about all of the opportunities and possibilities in Africa.
The VC4Africa meetup concept was born and we have now seen members take similar initiatives across the world. As of 2011 more than 25 meetups have been organized and counting....
