Techpoint Pitch Friday (May Edition)

Last month, we started the maiden edition of Techpoint Pitch Friday. This month would not be different as the last edition was insightful to those who attended. The Pitch Friday is an avenue to “break bread” with fellow startup founders and mercenaries in the tech sector. If you have an idea or you currently run a startup, this would be a cool place to be on Friday evening.

To partake in this month’s edition of Techpoint Pitch Friday, all you need do is indicate interest to feature as one of the five businesses taking the centre stage. Or simply register here to confirm your place amongst members of the audience.

Date: 11th of May 2018.

Time: 5PM – 7PM

Venue: 3rd floor, 194 Herbert Macaulay road, Adekunle, Yaba Lagos.
