Meet the speakers at Lagos Startup Week 2022

Lagos Startup Week is a celebration in Africa's startup scene that lasts for a full week and brings together various players for the purpose of learning, investment, exhibiting, career progression, and networking. It takes place from the 25th to the 30th of July in 2022.

With a gathering of more than 5,000 tech stakeholders each year, the Lagos Startup Week has established itself as the most engaging tech and startup event not only in Nigeria but even across Africa. This position was achieved since the event's inception in 2015. It is the only location that brings together people with relevant skills, such as founders, operators, investors, and regulators, all of whom have something valuable to offer each other.

The question of "What's Next?" is the focus of this year's edition. You will be able to take a glimpse into the future if you attend this event because you will be able to hear from those who are currently building for that future as well as their investors, and you will be able to understand the role that you could play in that future. Startup founders, investors, aspiring entrepreneurs, and tech enthusiasts will take an in-depth look at what the future holds for various industries, in addition to discussing other important topics such as gender equality and being globally employable.

The sixth iteration of the Lagos Startup Week (LSW), which will take place from July 25th to July 30th, 2022, will be hosted in three main venues, and it will also feature a number of virtual programs designed to include Africans living outside of Africa in the conversation.

" We couldn't be more thrilled to be a sponsor of the Lagos Startup Week this year. This year's edition is an opportunity to reflect on the journey that has been taken thus far and look into the future of technology across a variety of industries, including commerce, logistics, healthcare, and more. The company that I work for is a technology startup that solves payment problems for ambitious businesses in Africa.

We are excited to show guests exciting payment experiences at our booth, as well as to host participants on the innovation tour, engage in thought-provoking conversations, meet founders, operators, and other ecosystem stakeholders. claims Paystack, one of the event's sponsors, which is taking place in Lagos this week.
