Mark Essien, Founder and CEO of Hotels.ng, one of the first and most successful online hotel booking websites in Nigeria, will speak via Skype as mentor at the August edition of Startup Sunday in Port-Harcourt. The 38the edition of Start-Up Sunday in Port-Harcourt is scheduled to hold this Sunday 3pm, August 20th, 2017, at The Elkan Terrace conference room in Port Harcourt.

Startup Sunday is a periodic meet up where entrepreneurs, innovators, talents, funders and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, connect with potential team members and mentors, develop and nurture products and launch startups.

For those of you who don’t know Mark and are wondering, why the heck should I listen to him speak, he is a Nigerian entrepreneur, software developer and startup investor. He grew Hotels.ng, from an initial $300 investment in 2013 to over 7000 hotels signed up. He has successfully gotten rounds of investment funding from international investors including Omidyar network, investment vehicle of popular e-commerce company, E-bay. In 2015, Mark made the Forbes list of 30 youngest entrepreneurs in Africa.

The mentoring session is the highlight of Startup Sunday’s program and has featured eminent founders, including Kendall Anayi CEO of Y Combinator backed company – Tezeti, which raised $2.1 million, barely one week after he spoke at the June 2017 Startup Sunday meetup.

The mentoring session will be preceded by a pitching session where Samuel Adiela, a fresh Computer Science graduate will pitch Desk Buzz, an app that makes wireless phone calls between two systems without data. Other events include video viewing and discussions, an elevator pitch challenge and networking.

Startup Sunday is organised by Netopps, an organisation focused on building people and systems in Africa to leverage internet opportunities to optimize potentials in digital jobs, tech entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship. Admission is N3,000, paid at the venue.
