StartINVAfrica is an exhibition in Lagos slated to hold from the 17th to 19th December 2015. The event was birthed from the desire to introduce new ideas and showcase new businesses to more than 600+ attendees consisting of investors, industry leaders, delegates and stakeholders.
The Nigerian economy has experienced a rapid decline over the years, leading to several social and demographic challenges, one of the effects being the high rate of unemployment (there have also been several layoffs in the last quarter of the year especially in the Banking & Finance sectors). These challenges have made it expedient to start a talent conversation featuring keynote and speed mentoring sessions, quick pitches, master classes laced with fun and business networking between entrepreneurs, investors and senior delegates from within and outside Nigeria .
In line with the need for diversification of the economy, StartINV aims to reach out to small businesses in all sectors of the economy; Agric and allied businesses, fashion and commerce, manufacturing and so on. Hopeful entrepreneurs and SMEs should log unto www.startinv.com and register their businesses. Due diligence and authentication will be carried out on all participating SMEs which will help give them a fair chance to qualify to have individuals or corporate organizations invest in their businesses.
