Applications are now open for interested startups looking to pitch to local and international investors at the upcoming High Growth Africa Summit hosted by Ingressive and Starta. The summit will take place at the Landmark Event Centre, Lagos on November 17 and November 18, 2016.

Interested startups can enter the competition by filling a short form and submitting a 1-minute elevator pitch video. The five best pitch videos will participate in an extended pitch and Q&A session to angel investors, VCs, private equity funds and top executives attending the summit.

Although there is no cash prize for winners, selected startups will get up to 3 free masterclass passes, feedback and mentorship. They could also potentially receive investments from investors in attendance.

“We want to give the right opportunities for five startups to get feedback, get mentors and potentially get investments from these investors. If your startup is selected, your video will be screened to more than 150 local and international investors during the summit,” says Maya Horgan-Famodu, Ingressive’s CEO.  

The High Growth Africa Summit is taking place immediately after the African Angel Investment Summit hosted by ABAN so you can be rest assured that a lot of serious local and international investors will be at both events.

You can apply by sending your interesting 1-minute video pitch here. Applications close on Tuesday, 15th of November.
