The conference, which is independent from the Private Equity Industry Conference, is aimed to be a highlight of the industry calendar and a key value add to SAVCA's members and the industry at large.

The conference setting is collegial, informative and inclusive; with delegate passes limited as we will adhere strictly to all covid protocols so attendees are ensured of a safe environment with meaningful networking opportunities with other delegates.

The conference aims to:
• Showcase the Southern African Venture Capital Industry.
• Promote venture capital asset classes.
• Create a compelling context for networking and information sharing amongst industry players.
• Establish a platform for building and solidifying SAVCA's relationships with industry organisations, investors, regulators and the media.

Who can attend?
• Senior-level representatives from venture capital fund managers active in South Africa, Southern Africa and other parts of Africa.
• Investors into private equity and venture capital funds.
• Regulators and policymakers.
• Senior-level representatives from service providers to the private equity and venture capital industry (including bankers, lawyers, advisors, consultants).
• Senior-level business representatives seeking funding.
