Great event, the team have done a great job too. Will definitely pursue further discussions with the Entrepreneurs. Well done.
The AHUB has been a most excellent and well run VIP area. The team have been most welcoming and well organised. Also the informal hospitality out of conference has been exceptional. Well done to the great team.
The team have been professional and pleasant to work with. I was impressed with the set up of meetings even if not all were able to make it. The AHUB space has been great and is an amazing space to have meetings and network with start-ups.
As a first timer to the event it was excellent meeting the new start-ups and getting information and ideas that are developing in Africa. Thanks to the team for their enthusiasm and for finding and connecting us to the start-ups and thank you AHUB for providing this platform. Looking forward to next year’s event.
