Startup South Conference brings together founders, innovators and investors from across Nigeria and beyond to a city within the South-South and South-East Nigeria annually, to discuss technology and startup trends and challenges facing the growth of startups in the region.

This 5th edition themed: “Unlocking the Next 60 Million” will be held from October 29 to November 2, 2019, and will feature keynotes, ministerial panels, masterclasses and boot camps, while providing invaluable networking opportunities for participants in over 60 sessions by diverse organisations and individuals.

Major highlights of this edition will be the participation of at least four state governors from the region, who will hold a joint session to be streamed live by a partner Television channel. There will also be a pitch session which has seen past winners raise over $400,000 in investment capital over the past four years. The pitch session will also be streamed live.

The key focus will be on deepening broadband penetration and access for the over 60 million residents of the region to boost its economy, which is estimated at over $70 billion.

Speaking about the conference, the founder of #StartupSouth Uche Aniche said: “Over the past five years, we have worked hard to make the #StartupSouth Conference a driver of conversation that will boost economic growth in the region leveraging technology. This edition promises to see lots of improvements with participation from more diverse stakeholders. The Team is excited at the level of support #StartupSouth5 Uyo is receiving from stakeholders across the regions and Nigeria and we can’t wait to welcome participants to the best edition yet.”
