Silicon Valley investor to storm Nigeria for next big tech start-ups

Silicon Valley investor to storm Nigeria for next big tech start-ups

The MD of Techstars Atlanta Tyler Scriven is set to visit Lagos in his quest to find the next big Nigerian tech start-ups.

His visit follows that of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, 500 startups, and Y Combinator as Nigeria continues to welcome a number of high-profile Silicon Valley investors.

Scriven will be travelling with the Ingressive’s Tour of Tech between February 27th to March 4th and will visit Lagos as he is lined-up to be among the Social Media Week panelists, where he will be speaking on the topic, “Investing in Digital Media.”

Also, one can sign up to meet with Tyler during his start-up office hours.

The expected arrival of the Atlanta-based investor is an attestation to the rich history of talented and globally minded entrepreneurs in Nigeria.

These facts are not lost on Tyler, as he will be visiting Lagos with the hope of identifying companies to participate in Techstars Atlanta’s upcoming Accelerator program in July, where they would receive a $120,000 investment and be surrounded by world-class mentors.
