Join us for the 4st stop of the AfricArena Tour 2019 in Lagos, Nigeria ! 

This is call to Nigerian TECH STARTUPS, INVESTORS, and African TECH ECOSYSTEM community and enthusiasts!

AfricArena exists to provide a platform where startups can tell their story, gain valuable networks and attain funding.

The AfricArena Tour is the pre-selection process for the AfricArena Summit – an annual conference that showcases Africa’s best startups and innovators in front of an audience of local and international investors looking for world-class talent. AfricArena scours the major capitals of the continent in search of tech startups that have the potential to disrupt.

The Tour is coming to Lagos to give the best Nigerian entrepreneurs the opportunity to share their business model and convince the expert judges why they should be advanced to pitch at the grand finale in Cape Town, South Africa.

WHY ATTEND?

Witness the best Africa has to offer in innovation and get a front-row seat into the future. Expand your perception of Africa’s tech ecosystem and get to connect with a broad spectrum of people,ideas, industries, organisations, and more.
