Together with Koneksie, NABC would like to invite you to the Africa Business Club on Start-Ups on 24th March in Amsterdam. All members are invited to join this networking event.
The overall aim of this event is to provide a platform for networking, particularly for Start-Ups, and to allow for knowledge sharing on every level. Additionally, our newest members will be given the opportunity to introduce themselves; Skandar, INTL FCStone Inc., Asoko Insight, Ebit+, Simbuka, Induct BV & Wereldmuseum Rotterdam.

Established businesses and organisations thrive on innovation, development and growth, as do Start-Ups, which is why cooperation would be greatly beneficial. We're looking forward to a dynamic network reception.
