Ingressive CEO, Maya Horgan-Famodu said, “We are thrilled to host this diverse group of tech executives in Lagos. Some are here independently as a strictly exploratory opportunity, others from our group are here to close deals. They plan to invest, source local talent, partner with interesting organisations and forge lasting relationships with hackers on-ground in a bid to form ties and bridge into the continent.”

The rest of the tour will feature the High Growth Summit in partnership with Starta on November 17 and November 18 at the Landmark Event Centre, Lagos. It will be held with the support and presence of Google Launchpad for Developers, GitHub, and 500 Startups.

This is not the first time Ingressive is bringing big tech players to Lagos. In September, YCombinator came to town and startups in attendance gained valuable advice and contacts from the visit. This tour is Ingressive’s latest event to promote investment and advisory in the Nigerian tech ecosystem.
