ATTENDEES EXPERIENCES

The whole experience has been incredible, the assistance before and during the event from VUKA team has been outstanding. During my pitch I’ve been asked quite a few questions meaning that people got truly interested. It was like most of the delagates suddenly realized that infectious medical waste is also real, and it is much more hazardous and dangerous than the general waste…..luckily we now have a solution for a safe, environmentally friendly management. During the 2 days I had 9 official meetings, plus various delegates coming to talk to me after the pitch, lot of interest. I’m busy following-up with all of them, I will keep you posted on developments.

On behalf of Zero Carbon Charge, I wanted to thank you sincerely for your support and for the opportunity to be a part of the Africa's Green Economy Summit. This opportunity allowed me to meet dozens of people that I would've previously not bee able to meet, and I am truly grateful. We now have about 8 follow up meetings which may yield positive results for investment in our company. Well done to you both and your team for a fabulous and well executed event.

Having funders in the room was excellent, and the increased visibility was highly valuable. Partners appreciated the opportunity to engage with fellow attendees (...) which provided WESGRO with a more comprehensive perspective on projects in Africa.
