RENEW Strategies



Shark Tank Africa anybody?

RENEW runs Impact Angel Network member-only investment calls from Africa. Members receive on-the-ground updates, hear about upcoming investment opportunities, meet entrepreneurs, ask questions of the RENEW team and other members. Our 2017 calls are hosted on the second or third Wednesday of every month. If interested in joining or hearing a replay of our prior calls, please contact us.

Get ready for an investment adventure.

RENEW hosts guided Impact Angel Network members-only “Econ-Tourism” trips to countries where we invest. Members conduct site visits to portfolio and pipeline companies and meet with local entrepreneurs, engage with dignitaries and heads of state, and experience the country's culture in a very unique way. RENEW’s upcoming Econ-Tourism trips to Ethiopia are scheduled for:

  • September 17 to 23, 2017
  • February 18 to 24, 2018
