Ingressive is set to host its 3rd annual Tour of Tech this November 16-22 to provide proprietary market access, and promote cross-pollination through curated convenings with Africa-focused investors, local techies, influencers, and policy makers.
The tour will feature executives from GitHub, AngelList, Glickman Family Trust, Jackson Ross Law, Banwo & Ighodalo, Petrolex, PwC and more.
Last year, Ingressive had executives from Y Combinator, GitHub, New Relic, USAID, 500 Startups, Intuit and others. The week-long tour is culminated by Ingressive and Starta’s High Growth Africa Summit; a 2-day conference dedicated to teaching entrepreneurs how to build, scale and fund high growth businesses in Africa.
The summit launched last year and included Monique Woodard, Venture Partner at 500 Startups; Yvonne Wassenaar, New Relic CIO (NYSE: NEWR); 5 executives from GitHub and Google, VilCap investors, and many more.
Jason Seats, Techstars Partner said after 2016 tour “I’m ready to co-invest with experienced African tech investors. Before Ingressive and Tour of Tech, we didn’t know where to start without boots on the ground. The Ingressive team are true networkers and made investing in the continent digestible and accessible.”
This year’s Summit will be hosting 750+ delegates, a significant increase from last year’s 350+ pan-African entrepreneurs and 100+ global investors attendees.
Some of the confirmed speakers include Mr. Eazi and Ajebutter, two prominent artists and entrepreneurs from Nigeria; Chris Schultz, Founder at LaunchPad; Akin Oyebode, of the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF); Fela Durotoye of Gemstone Group; Shola Akinade, Founder of Paystack; Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, Founder at Flutterwave.
