Episode details

Live Session LSW18

There is an ongoing debate about the Silicon Valley-models being used by accelerators in Africa and whether these prepare entrepreneurs for the realities of operating in African markets.

On this episode Join Village Capital in partnership with Lagos Startup Week as we host a panel where the value proposition of accelerators, both African and international, will be discussed. The panel will consist of African entrepreneurs that have gone through international programs as well as Africa based programs. We will find out about the journey these entrepreneurs have embarked on, as well as how much of their success they attribute to the accelerators.
