Africa Virtual Accelerator

The three-week intensive accelerator program prepares the businesses to pitch to investors at the annual Angel Fair Africa (AFA). The AVA program kicked off in 2020 as a virtual complement to the physical entrepreneur's 3-day bootcamp - a key part of the Angel Fair Africa program line-up since its inception in 2013.

This year's Angel Fair Africa (the 9th edition of the annual event) is scheduled to hold in Mauritius on the 25th of November, 2021.

The AVA is convened by Chanzo Capital & powered by Adei Institute of Technology.
