Although the African continent's venture capital market is expanding, there are still many obstacles preventing the sector's expansion. Regulatory obstacles, transaction flow restrictions, infrastructure problems, a lack of knowledge, and insufficient cash are a few of the major roadblocks to this expansion.
Proximity Ventures, an Australian-based company, is tackling this issue head-on. In addition to backing the best startups on the continent, Tech Safari, their African-focused publication, is helping to highlight and create a strong network for African start-ups.
Join us in this episode of iAfrikan BYTES as we speak with Caleb Maru, partner at Proximity Ventures and editor at Tech Safari, about the inspiration behind this engine.
