Hundreds of startup founders will have the opportunity to network with leading international investors, top businessmen, African influencers and diplomats with the hope of securing funding and mentorship, as Ingressive, a company supporting new generation of African innovators launches its Tour of Tech event.

Previously, there have been calls and responses from different quarters (mostly startups) for the need for government and angel investors alike to provide investment and training platforms for startups looking to scale.

Tour of Tech is expected to connect experts in the business of building startups with viable startups looking to scale. Experts will mentor or invest or do both in businesses ready to scale.

According to founder, Maya Horgan-Famodu, “The world has turned to Africa and we welcome those ready to commit capital.”

As part of the agenda, Ingressive, in partnership with travel startup Tastemakers Africa will also organize experiential tours of Lagos, from boat trips to the famed Lagos nightlife.

Tour of Tech members will also attend an investor summit tagged In Pursuit of Progress and Preservation, produced by Lagos Angel Network and VC4Africa on Thursday, September 24, 2015 where sector leaders will discuss the place and role of Nigeria in the global economy.

Expected guests include Hon. Omobola Johnson, former Minister of ICT, Tunji Eleso, Co-founder of CoCreation Hub Nigeria, Folabi Esan, Co-founder Adlevo Capital, Tola Akerele, Co-founder, Bogobiri Hotel, Diekoye Oyeyinka, author of Stillborn, and many others.

Reasons for innovation failure in Nigeria have always generated divided opinions with a school of thought laying the blame at the feet of funding. One the other hand, another school of thought believes entrepreneurs and startup founders should seek training first as that is the bane of entrepreneurial development in the country.

None the less, the Tour of Tech event seem to have taken all these into consideration as it provides startup founders with a well-packaged event that address major challenges faced by startups in one sweep.
