LYFECAMP’s vision is to create an annual bootcamp where the most promising high-tech Nigerian entrepreneurs can come to learn how to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists. This first edition targets both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
We help entrepreneurs move to the next level by helping them solve their biggest challenge, whether it be marketing, technical, or otherwise, giving them skills to grow their organization, and finally, introducing them to the connections they need to make things happen. During the conference, our “cadets” will be invited to present their products in a competitive environment, including a pitch competition, attended by investors and other entrepreneurs.
Nigeria and Africa have been, and will continue to be, transformed by the impact of the Internet and mobile devices. There will be many new ventures created that can possibly change the way the average person lives, but many of these ventures will need capital to fund their growth and emergence. It is widely known that raising capital is an arduous and time-consuming endeavor and LYFECAMP will streamline the process through its bootcamp and its platform. By streamlining this process, we will be able to get the transformative ventures that will improve the quality of life the funding they need so they can focus on building incredible ventures.
