The Lagos Angel Network (LAN), a premier angel network in Nigeria and one of the most active in Africa, has opened applications for the inaugural Lagos StartUp DealDay in 2017.
Launched last year, Lagos StartUp DealDay is a three times a year investment round where the very best startup ventures (across different sectors) are guaranteed funding.
Three deal days held last year with several startups (some unknown at the moment) getting a slice of the ₦100 million raised by LAN from its members and the early stage investment community at large.
This first edition in 2017 seeks startups not less than two years old (or more than five years old), CAC-registered, have existing customers, and looking to raise between ₦50 million and ₦100 million.
Shortlisted applicants will be notified on March 20 and then invited to pitch to a small, closed panel of angel investors on March 24, 2017 at a yet-to-be-announced venue.
Startups interested in the event should apply by February 24, 2017. The application process involves publishing a venture profile on the VC4Africa platform.
VC4A, the Africa Business Angel Network (ABAN), Lagos tech hubs, incubators and accelerators are partners of the LAN Lagos Startup DealDay for 2017.
