Building Together,

from London to Africa.

Connect, Share & Learn with UK's largest community of professionals working and investing in Africa.



Online Community




"Named by Sifted in 2024 as one of the 18 best communities to join in European tech, according to women in tech."

London Africa is the community for those operating in and building the UK - Africa's tech startup, innovation, creative and investor ecosystems.

We provide a space for people to connect, share and learn from one another by fostering meaningful relationships and opportunities to collaborate. Our aim is simple, to be the melting pot to bring together and create awareness of who is operating and what is happening in the UK -Africa corridor. We do this through hosting an in-person event every quarter and our online platform that allows members the opportunity to engage with each other as well as facilitate access to other organisations, events and opportunities happening in the wider ecosystem.

The Community Offering

Members of the London Africa, you have access to several community resources and opportunities:


In-person event in London every quarter to meet other members over African-fusion food and drink. Each event is in collaboration with an ecosystem partner to offer a unique experience. 


Access to the members directory to connect with fellow members, share and make asks or offerings to one another. The goal is to foster collaboration between people and organisations in the community.

Ecosystem Tools & Resources 

Access to a curated community space to share & access UK - Africa news, opportunities, jobs, and information as well as a spotlight on other ecosystem events as well as supporting member lead activities. 

Partner Perk & Opportunities
