Verdant Capital Hosted a Women in Finance Networking Breakfast in conjunction with the AVCA Conference that took place in Johannesburg in April 2024

Verdant Capital hosted a Women in Finance Networking Breakfast coinciding with the Africa Venture Capital Association (AVCA) conference, held in Johannesburg for the first time in 20 years. This exclusive breakfast brought together women leaders, finance professionals, and aspiring entrepreneurs from across the continent and beyond.

Held on the 23rd of April 2024, the networking breakfast drew an impressive array of attendees, including representatives from leading financial institutions, private equity firms, and venture capital funds.

The networking breakfast provided a unique platform for women in finance to connect, share experiences, and discuss the challenges and opportunities they face in the industry. Verdant Capital’s initiative to host this event underscores its commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion within the financial sector.

Unlike traditional networking events, this breakfast did not feature formal speeches or presentations. Instead, attendees engaged in informal discussions, getting to know each other on a personal and professional level. This relaxed atmosphere encouraged open dialogue and the exchange of ideas, allowing participants to forge meaningful connections and build a supportive network.

Verdant Capital’s Women in Finance Networking Breakfast not only provided a valuable networking opportunity but also reinforced the importance of building a supportive network that can drive collective growth and success. The event concluded with a sense of camaraderie and a shared commitment to continue fostering these connections and supporting each other in their professional endeavours.

The success of this event sets a positive precedent for future gatherings, with attendees expressing their eagerness to participate in similar initiatives. As the finance sector evolves, events like these play a crucial role in shaping a more diverse and dynamic industry landscape.
