One landmark acquisition, several funding rounds and meaningful expansions have drawn attention to Nigeria’s potential to become an enabling environment for businesses. Nigerian tech startups are raising larger seed rounds and pursuing unique global ambitions than at any other time in the last decade.

To dispel such fears and sustain optimism about doing business in Nigeria, startup leaders are fishing for solutions with the cooperation of government officials. One urgent offer on the table is a Nigeria startup bill.

The event was a virtual ecosystem townhall with the theme Making laws work for startups in Nigeria.
