We do this daily through our local events, flagship conferences, startup program, partnerships, and online media + content - collectively reaching over 4 million individuals worldwide.

Our goal is to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. Meet and learn from awesome entrepreneurs, coaches and mentors at our monthly meetups here in Lagos, Nigeria.
