StartUpPlus prepares to accelerate over one hundred startup ideas across various sectors at this year’s Startup Conference in Lagos, Nigeria.
StartUpPlus, a startup accelerator headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria convenes Startup Conference annually to power startups with practical strategies in relevant subjects. But this year’s conference comes in the wake of a deepening economic recession across the world. Africa has witnessed an eruption in the evolution of startups over the last two years with Nigeria more than doubling in the number of SMEs from 17 million in November 2014 to 37 million in December 2015; a witness to the huge need for funding ideas.
Startup Conference Lagos 2016 themed, Cashflow 2.0 – funding ideas, is intended to teach entrepreneurs how to build “fundable” startups and how to find funding for their ideas through creative funding options. The Executive Director, Adeleke David Adekunle, hinted that “Startup Conference seeks to impart participants with fundamental principles for getting their ideas funded without risking energy loss and the trademark “hypertension” that accompanies bank loans.”
In its third edition, Startup Conference will play host to powerhouse panelists including Oladipo Dinyo (Arch Koncepts Group), Gbenga Sesan (Paradigm Initiative Nigeria, PIN), Kola Oyeneyin (Venia Hub), Fisayo Okunsanya (6334 Business Group), Femi Ariyo (Freesia Networks), Bunmi Jembola (Venture Nest), and Abimbola Adebakin (Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Foundation) offering a robust resource base to startups in diverse industries including real estate, FMCG, oil and gas, education, agriculture, health, tech and nonprofit.
Startup Conference Lagos 2016 will hold at the prestigious Protea Hotel Ikeja, Isaac John Street, GRA at 10am. Participation is 100% FREE to interested startups.
