Its November baby!

As usual, when November draws near, its already imminent that the year is over. Preparations for end of year activities kick into full gear.

For startups in Port-Harcourt and indeed the south, there are other reasons to celebrate. 2 major startup conferences and events hold this November –  #StartupSouth3 and the Startup Port-Harcourt week. They are conferences where startups will have the opportunity to network, mentor, pitch and possibly get investments

While the 3rd edition of startup south holds on the 9th of November this year, the Startup Port-Harcourt week holds from Nov 26-Dec 2, 2017 .
