"Amitious.Africa has been established in Spring 2020 by a group of young students supported by professionals, mainly Peter Vesterbacka, serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Slush and Angry Birds. A.A started with a series of online matchmaking events connecting young changemakers, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders in Africa and the Nordics. The timing was perfect – as people were forced to stay at home due to the pandemic, more people across the two continents were interested and could attend. However, it was more than just luck. Many dots had to be connected long before the events kicked off in order to bring the Ambitious.Africa concept to life.
