lagos startupweek

The Lagos StartupWeek has been scheduled for July, 2015. A five-day celebration of entrepreneurs/startups community, where entrepreneurs engage and learn from local and visiting mentors and investors, reports Disrupt Africa.

Entrepreneurs present will discuss products development, business building and how to interact with their addressable market. This is the first African StartupWeek and the event has previously been held at various venues across the 75 cities in the world.

“Startup week is a catalyst for new opportunities. When you bring dedicated entrepreneurs with good ideas together with mentors and investors, great things are going to happen,” said StartupWeek founder Andrew Hyde.

“The world’s focus is on Africa at the moment with Nigeria being a pivotal point for investment activities on the continent. Africa is certainly rising and Nigeria appears to be leading this rebirth. If you are interested in checking out or getting plugged into the Lagos startup scene, there isn’t a better time to come to Lagos than during Lagos StartupWeek,” local organizers say.

The organisers are looking to receive entrepreneurs from United Kingdom (UK), United States (UK), Spain and Switzerland.
