A few things we’re great at
BAEC strongly believes that a mutually beneficial relationship between Africa and United Kingdom based on business, trade and investment is in the best interest of the citizens of both nations, and sustainable to stand the test of time at a time of great political changes taking place in our world.
We also connect British African Entrepreneurs with investors, who want to invest in Africa, either between BAEC members themselves or with external investors through networking functions and meetings.
The format of BAEC networking meetings and events is structured, but relaxed. Delegates sit at a table in horseshoe or boardroom configuration and start by sharing good news and thanks for business referrals. Each delegate then promotes their business. Members get slots to give presentations about their businesses. The rest of the time is spent networking. Events/Meetings are chaired by the Founder & CEO, with a member of the BAEC team always in attendance.
