The AfricArena Podcast with Patrick Craig

By Experientialist Sound Lab

Welcome to the AfricArena Podcast, the African tech and innovation audio show. For those who don't know, AfricArena is a pan-African ecosystem accelerator whose mission is to help African startups access bigger markets and raise more capital. Each year during our tour, we scour the major capitals of the continent in search of the most game changing startups in each region which we then bring to our annual summit in Cape Town in Nov of that year. In each episode we chat to the the most interesting thought leaders, founders, investors and corporate change makers of our time, about their work, impact and ideas. We unpack their many insights around innovation, growth, challenges, mindset and investment because our mission is to accelerate the rate at which our ecosystems are growing throughout this amazing continent.
