The week-long tour will feature a closed training and partnership exploration session on November 17th where investors and founders will train and cooperate with local investors, developers, startup founders and tech enthusiasts.
Themed “Capacity Building”, the tour will have tech players like Yvonne Wassenaar of New Relic, Grieg Coppe of Intuit, Monique Woodard of 500 Startups, Tayo Oviosu of Paga, Mark Essien of Hotels.ng, Iyinoluwa Aboyeji of Flutterwave & Andela and Neku Atawodi of MEST Africa in attendance. The impressive line-up also includes 5 executives from GitHub and a group of private investors.
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.
