It is an annual event with the mission to advance ecosystem building as a new approach to economic development to help more people and communities achieve economic independence through entrepreneurial success while recognising unsung heroes in ecosystem building.
ABOUT THE SUMMIT
The ASEB Summit was designed to create a unified, continental movement of entrepreneurs and ecosystem builders who work to infuse entrepreneurship into economic development. The idea for the summit began with the Setup A Startup organisation which came to the realisation that the African entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem is fragmented and there are hundreds of people building ecosystems in different ways and saw an opportunity to bring them together to connect and collaborate.
The Summit will bring together key players in the entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem. These builders will help accelerate the emerging field of ecosystem building by collaboratively creating tools, resources, and sharing new knowledge to better support communities that empower the makers, doers, and dreamers in our communities, that is the entrepreneurs.
This Summit invites entrepreneurs, governments, policymakers, economic developers, grassroots leaders, investors, community builders, universities, funders, philanthropists, media experts, and national ecosystem support organisations to support and accelerate transformation through entrepreneurship. Together, we can better understand how to build thriving ecosystems.
