Event description
Join author and entrepreneur Sangu Delle for the launch of his first book– Making Futures: Young Entrepreneurs in a Dynamic Africa!

About this Event

Sangu Delle is one of African’s most enterprising young investors, a TEDGlobal Fellow and serial entrepreneur. Over the past seven years, he has travelled to 45 African countries and interviewed over 600 young entrepreneurs, from whom he has selected 17 of the most inspirational, courageous and hard-working to profile in his book Making Futures. Their stories are inspiring and aspirational, from Eric Muthomi in Kenya, who has built a successful business creating multipurpose flour from bananas to feed babies, to Farida Bedwei, co-founder of the largest microfinance banking software platform in Ghana.

To celebrate the launch of Making Futures, Sangu will be sharing his expertise with a Q&A session. Sangu has acquired a vast knowledge of business environments across Africa, with a particular focus on start-ups and entrepreneurship, and will endeavour to respond to questions, drawing on examples taken from the 600 young people he interviewed in the course of his research. Come and test his knowledge on everything from researching investment opportunities to management, recruitment, raising capital and marketing!

Sangu Delle is Managing Director of Africa Health Holdings focused on "building Africa's healthcare future" and Chairman of Golden Palm Investments Corporation, an African venture capital firm. His GPIC portfolio companies have raised over $500 million in the last 5 years. Delle has been named Africa’s “Young Person of the Year”, a TED Fellow, a Tutu Fellow and Forbes’ top 30 most promising entrepreneurs in Africa. Sangu is a Trustee of the Peddie School, an Advisory Board member of Harvard University's Center for African Studies and a member of Harvard Medical School’s Global Health Advisory Council.
