About Marketplace

Sahara Sparks event has always had a platform where entrepreneurs from all over Africa pitch to investors, and corporate and development org executives, this has evolved into the Sahara Sparks Investor Marketplace event. From 2016-2021, we selected 73 high-potential early-stage businesses from across the continent as part of Sahara Sparks, resulting in a number of deals totaling over $15+M. Building on this success, the Sahara Sparks Investor Marketplace is now a central component of our efforts to support investors connecting with high-quality deal flow. This is an exclusive opportunity to introduce your company at once to everyone who's anyone in Africa's early-stage investment space.

The marketplace enables businesses to showcase to the local and global network of Africa-focused investors. Through the space, the local marketplace aims to inspire local investors in our Ecosystem to start, spot, and grasp the investment opportunities here in our Ecosystem, and others in the continent that will be available. The event aims to attract the participation of key stakeholders working in the Africa Innovation & Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. It includes The Government, Venture Capital Firms, Startups and SMEs, The Private Sector (Banks, Legal Firms, Consulting), and Angel Investment Networks.
