On Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 we’re having our annual VC4A meetup in Lagos! The event will take place at Cre8 Space / Cafe Neo (6, Agoro Odiyan, Victoria Isalnd, Lagos) at 6:00PM and is hosted by VC4A and LAN (Lagos Angel Network).
This year’s event will celebrate the launch of two accelerator programs:
- XL Africa, pan-African World Bank-backed post-accelerator for digital scale-ups
- SLA Accelerator, an exclusive program for women-led businesses in Nigeria
VC4A is involved as partner and implementer in both programs, and we’ll be happy to share more info and answer any questions in an informal setting. We also expect our special guests from SLA to join us.
The event is open to all VC4A members and partners. It’s free of charge, there is no agenda and no speakers – only short announcements and lots and lots of networking! It’s an informal event and the dress code is business casual. We will work with a guest list, if you want to attend you have to sign up!
For all guests arriving before 6:30 pm the first drink is on the house! Everyone else is expected to pay their own drinks. We’ll be also offering some light snack on the house.
