The week-long event of learning and networking is themed “Getting Started” and would be featuring a broad range of activities–from master classes to pitch sessions and networking, all very important topics that affect our technology space and ecosystem.
With sessions like From Zero to $1Million, Leaders in Tech, Future of Work, Women Who Launch and several workshops and master classes, the LSW Conference 2018 will provide entrepreneurs insight on raising capital, marketing, sales, bank loans, exit strategies and others.
We’re expanding into 12 carefully curated tracks to shape a much deeper conversation on how technologies such as blockchain and AI will directly affect industries, professions and the way we innovate.
The conference which is organized by Olumide Olayinka (Managing Partner, Prime Startups), is now in its 4th year and has always played host to over 5000+ attendees.
The previous editions of the event has featured talks from active Lagos-based entrepreneurs and investors like Kola Aina (Ventures Platforms), Ola Orekunrin (Flying Doctors Nigeria), Shola Akinlade (Paystack), Yele Bademosi (Microtraction), and seasoned global investors from companies such as Accion, Y-Combinator, Case Foundation, Techstars, Seedstars, Village Capital, IFC – the World Bank, and the British Council. Building upon this, its organizers promise something even better for this year.

“It’s going to be a busy week, so make sure you plan your schedule in advance. Our goal from the first Lagos startup week has been to create a platform where entrepreneurs, founders and investors learn, network, find customers and get answers. Every year, we keep getting better at this and encourage new companies to participate,” said Olumide Olayinka.
