Funding has slowed down globally, and African startups are not exempt from the reduced flow of investor capital. Investors are said to be more cautious, and businesses in need of investor funds are left in limbo, not to mention the current global and local economic realities.
However, all hope isn't lost, as some startups are still getting the cheques. The question that remains is: how?
To answer this question at the Lagos Startup Expo, Olu Oyinsan will be facilitating the masterclass session titled "How to secure funding when no one wants to invest.” The masterclass sessions are exclusive to VIPs. To attend these sessions, get your VIP ticket on the Expo website.
Olu Oyinsan is an emerging markets seed-stage investor and managing partner at Oui Capital, an early-stage VC fund investing in promising technology companies in frontier markets.
Before launching Oui Capital, Olu started his career in commercial banking with Nigeria’s Guaranty Trust Bank, later working as a TEI consultant at Forrester, a global market research firm advising some of the biggest technology companies. He also worked at Silicon Valley Bank’s early-stage practice, supporting early-stage tech companies across the east coast of the US.
He holds an MBA from Hult International Business School, Boston, with a concentration in finance and strategy.
