After a long wait, the all-inclusive Lagos Economic Summit – EHINGBETI is finally a few days away.
As stakeholders gear up for the economic summit which has been slated for the 16th to 18th of February, Lagos State in partnership with a digital tech media platform – Techuncode, and other selected tech hubs are driving conversations within communities on issues tied to the #ForAGreaterLagos theme.
This initiative is intended to serve as a prelude to the main event –EHINGBETI 2021. In a bid to encourage more participation among the youths and other interested individuals across Lagos State, this preparatory program has been divided into different series and shared among selected hubs that are sparsely distributed across the state.
One of the partnering hubs on the community discourse is Ingressive Capital. Featuring thought leaders in the technology space, Ingressive Capital will be hosting a conversation around the theme “accelerating impact through Investment in technology”.
The discourse would allow individuals within the firm’s community and other professionals from without to rub minds together and map out a plan for birthing a greater Lagos by means of improved investment in technology within the state
The event will be held virtually on Thursday, the 11th of February 2021 from around 2pm to 3pm. Click this link to register or visit bit.ly/ehingbetitechhubs.

Commenting on the upcoming hub discussion, Techuncode General Manager Arinola Gelor said, “We believe that every tech community has a significant role to play in the state’s reform. This is why we have decided to co-host this event with selected tech hubs within Lagos State. ”
“Our goal is to come out of each discourse with specific and realistic recommendations that’d aid investment in technology within Lagos State and ultimately promote the #ForAGreaterLagos agenda,” she added.
