Lagos Startup Week prides itself as a forerunner in the race towards an innovation driven city.

In the context of entrepreneurship, innovation should be one of its backbones. Learning from previous models and improving substantially on them should be an integral part of our entrepreneurial culture. Innovation does not include a blatant copying of someone’s ideas, or models as yours. It requires a significant improvement.

It features an ecosystem that encourages innovation to improve entrepreneurship in the commercial city of Lagos and by extension, Africa.
