Accra, Ghana - Lagos, Nigeria

Are you interested in investing in the fast-growing emerging markets of West Africa? Impact Hub Accra is organising a tour for investors to Ghana and Nigeria. Together with our partner, Make-IT in Africa, we are inviting 10 investors to dive into the Ghanaian startup scene in Accra and Kumasi as well as the bubbling startup hub Lagos, Nigeria. With the support of expert local guides and investors, you will have the chance to hold one-on-one meetings with selected startups within your investment target. These startups are carefully hand-picked and supported through intense investor-readiness programs with special focus on making your due diligence process easy and seamless. Beyond meeting startups, you will have the chance to connect with local investors for potential co-investments. And of course if you know anything about West Africa, you know we don’t play with our parties! This trip will be no different. Deep Dive Africa will bring the afrobeat heat throughout your trip.
