I dream of a global network of women entrepreneurs and investors. Women around the globe have so many commonalities, and also fascinating diverse perspectives and experiences. We can learn so much from each other. One of the most exciting things about my work in activating new women angels is that we can support deserving women entrepreneurs who may not find capital elsewhere, due to their gender. When we combine one woman’s capital and support with another woman’s world-changing idea, visions become real. How much more exciting is it to be able to do this on a global scale? Women around the world intimately understand the problems in their communities and have innovative solutions in mind. Let’s work together to unleash those solutions!
It’s because of this dream that I am incredibly excited to be supporting the Tour of Tech 2015, by Ingressive. This is an opportunity for investors from around the world to meet the top African entrepreneurs at two major gatherings happening in Lagos, Nigeria, this coming September. Over half of the trip itinerary will be focused specifically on women entrepreneurs and their ecosystem support in Africa.
Please consider joining me on this unique trip if you would like to:
– Experience first-hand the startup ecosystem in Africa
– Support women working together globally to advance innovation
– Build your entrepreneurial networks in Africa
– Find the best angel investment opportunities in Africa, which are some of the best in the world.
Below please find the official trip description. I know you will want to know more, so please contact me. I hope to see you in Nigeria!
Tour of Tech: 2015
Ingressive is leading an angel investor trip to She Leads Africa, the continent’s most prestigious showcase for the top women-led startups, and DEMO Africa, a two-day expo for the fastest growing high tech, AI, robotics, and software startups.
We have partnered with Tastemakers, a local agency providing world-class travel services, as well as the opportunity to experience culture, venues, and nightlife as only locals do. It will be quite the adventure.
Past attendees have included Dangote, Bola Adesola (CEO Standard Chartered), Jason Njoku (Founder iROKO TV), and Hakeen Belo-Osagie (Chairman Etisalat Nigeria).
Media coverage includes Forbes, The Guardian, Black Enterprise, BusinessDay, Lions Africa, Atlanta Blackstar, Techabal, and Bella Naija—to name a few.
From September 20-27, we invite angels from around the world to join us in Lagos for a trip packed with local tours, private startup dinners, meetings and mentorings with some of the most influential minds of Africa.
Now is the perfect time to look carefully at opportunities across the continent. Six of the ten fastest growing economies as well as the fastest growing consumer class are in Africa. No other region currently has the dynamic combination of rapidly growing markets, maturing financial infrastructure, growing political stability, and dramatically increasing investment activity by private investors and major multinationals. Join us, empower women, build startups, and gain exclusive access to some of the highest performing companies on the continent.
