A big thank you to the Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce and Sectoral Associations! Yesterday, on July 26th, RENEW and the Addis Ababa Chamber, one of our City Partners, hosted a Private Equity seminar as part of the Investment Challenge. We had a full house at the event and were joined by over 50 entrepreneurs, mainly in Addis Ababa’s manufacturing sector.

As one of the pioneers of equity investing in Ethiopia, our investment workshops helps participants understand private equity, why it exists and how it can help their business. Our goal is to help build and strengthen the investment ecosystem through targeted trainings, making good investments and growing great companies, in turn leading to financial returns and creation of jobs in Ethiopia.
