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.

Mingle with the who's who of Africa’s growth.

Get ready for an investment adventure.

RENEW’s upcoming Econ-Tourism trips to Ethiopia are scheduled for:

  • February 18 to 24, 2018
  • September 23 to 28, 2018 (tentative)
