Last week Kenya hosted Global Entrepreneur Summit with United State President, Barack Obama who was accompanied by 3 notable Americans as entrepreneurship ambassadors, AOL founder Steve Case, Shark Tank’s Daymond John and AirBnB founder Brian Chesky.
Jean and Steve Case came from Kenya to visit Nigeria to listen to interesting pitches. Yesterday he visited African Courier Express (ACE) office at Victoria Island where he met with the Co-founders Tunde Kehinde and Eric Ercin and the team leads at the company.
The visitation was led by ACE investor Pule Taukobong of Africa Angel Network. Jean and Steve Case will be at Co-creation hub today to listen to pitches where finest startups will walk away with $50,000. The Cases will be joined by Eghosa Omoigui, Managing Partner of EchoVC.
We are really curious about this visitation. Should we be expecting a big funding announcement soon?
