We founded Starta on a simple premise. We believe that billion dollar businesses will be built in Africa by Africans, writes Dotun Olowoporoku.
Technology has created unprecedented opportunities for Africans to build these companies faster, cheaper and in more efficient ways than previous generations. Our mission at Starta is to help entrepreneurs who are committed to building such businesses.
The High Growth Africa Summit is one of the ways with which we seek to achieve this mission. High Growth Africa Summit is organised by Starta and Ingressive and will be attended by over 250 pan-African entrepreneurs and 100 global investors.
It will feature about 30 masterclass sessions and keynotes that will explore various aspects of launching, scaling and funding high growth businesses in Africa.
The High Growth Africa Summit closes off a week-long rush of conferences, summits and private salons, that will take place in Victoria Island, Lagos in November.
This will be on the back of high profile visits to the Lagos ecosystem by Mark Zuckerberg, Dave McClure, Michael Siebel from YCombinator and Tim Draper.
The summit will take place on 17-18 November and will be by invitation only. You can request your invite at highgrowthafrica.com
