Limited Capacity seats available

Working with the 2018 theme of “Closer” for Social Media Week Lagos, the LSETF  launches its tech programme “Lagos Innovates”.

Following the successful start of its loan programs, the LSETF has recently turned its attention to “Innovation-Driven Enterprises” (IDEs) popularly known as “Tech Start-ups”. The Lagos State Government and LSETF jointly recognize the importance of the “IDEs” and the strategic need to make Lagos a destination for tech development, innovation and financing.

Lagos is on a quest to become the investment destination for Technology driven solutions and Lagos Innovates is positioned to be the only formal, structured tech start- up focused program of its kind by a government or quasi- government organization in Sub-Saharan Africa to drive this movement.

Join us as we celebrate and discuss!
- Particpate in the formal launch of the Lagos Innovates program
- Help us bring awareness in the tech community for the opportunities of Lagos Innovates
- Celebrate and highlight the growing profile of Lagos as an investment destination
