This November, Ingressive and Starta are partnering to host a two-day conference where entrepreneurs will learn how to build, scale and fund high growth businesses in Africa.

Tagged the High Growth Africa Summit, the event will take place at Plot 2&3 Water Corporation Road, Victoria Island Annex Lagos, from November 17 to November 18, 2016.

At the Summit, successful business founders and operators from Silicon Valley, UK and Africa will be around to share practical how-to guides on strategy, tactics and growth tools with participants.

Speaking on the event, Managing Partner at Starta, Dotun Olowoporoku, said “We know that technology will enable Africans to build these [billion dollar businesses] faster and in more efficient ways than generations before us. Our goal is to help entrepreneurs who are serious and committed to building such businesses. The High Growth Africa Summit is one of the ways with which we seek to achieve that.”

The Summit will feature leading players in the tech ecosystem including Monique Woodard, Venture Partner at 500 Startups; Omobola Johnson, Partner at TLcom Capital; James Lyle, Founder of Fulmar Advisors; Tayo Oviosu, Founder of Paga; Yvonne Wassenaar, CIO of New Relic; Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, Co-Founder of Flutterwave among others, as well as executives from GitHub and Google.

There’ll also be an interesting elevator pitch competition where Nigerian entrepreneurs can compete for the chance to win one of four free tickets to private meetings with key investors in attendance.

Maya Horgan-Famodu, Founder at Ingressive, on the potential of the African market as a promising space for foreign investment, says “The world is ready for African tech. The question now is which investors will win the market first. It’s a standoff, and Ingressive is here to bring those ready to invest and advise into the ecosystem.”

Interested participants can apply to attend here.
