Lagos welcomes Startup Grind, host Jason Njoku and Bastian Gotter of Irokotv/Spark

"If you think starting a company is tough in, say, NY, try doing it in Lagos."

Startup Grind comes to Lagos, arguably Africa's technology hub.

Lagos is the most populous city in Nigeria, it is also the second fastest-growing city in Africa and the seventh in the world with its diverse population of over 17 million people locals and expatriate, making it the largest city in Africa.
