by | Oct 5, 2016

Following the success of the maiden edition, the city of Port Harcourt is set to host the second edition of StartupSouth.

StartupSouth is an annual conference designed to educate and connect people with brilliant ideas to people looking to invest in big ideas.

The ultimate goal of StartupSouth is to awaken the consciousness of younger generations of Nigerian entrepreneurs (emphasis on those operating within the South-south/South-East corridors) to opportunities and trends within the global entrepreneurial community.

The 2015 edition had over 200 Startup Founders, Investors and technology enthusiasts in attendance. This year’s edition will host no less than 500 founders as well as an interesting line of guest speakers from Nigeria and beyond. The theme for this year event is Tech As Business Enabler.


With StartupSouth, participants will also be afforded the opportunity to learn useful tips from experts to grow their business better.
