Funding Possibilities

The African Gateway Dubai Chamber helps businesses who want to understand market dynamics, bid for tenders or connect with businesses in Africa. It has launched a portal which houses case studies, news articles as well as facts and figures needed to make an informed decision about the business opportunities available in Africa. Earlier this year, the chamber hosted an event dubbed a “chamberthon”, with 5 African Startups and their Dubai counterparts vying for a spot in a mentorship programme. At the end of the mentorship, the startups will have an audience with business and government leaders attending Global Business Forum Africa to pitch for backers. Under the banner “Scale Up Africa”, the chamber will host its 5th Global Business Forum in November 2019 where the conversation will centre around restoring business confidence in Africa.
