Ingressive gave us access to the Nigerian tech scene,

Ingressive gave us access to the Nigerian tech scene, from media to top startups to government, local ecosystem and everything in between. There is no way I would come to West Africa without them, and no way I'd let anyone in tech go without them.

Visiting Nigeria with Maya and the Ingressive team was a life-changing experience for me

Visiting Nigeria with Maya and the Ingressive team was a life-changing experience for me. I've returned home with new found perspective on what it means to apply technology and entrepreneurial hustle to 'hard problems'. I have no doubt that we'll see a transformative, billion-dollar company emerge out of Nigeria in the next ten years, and I'm excited to be a part of the ecosystem's journey.

The best part of the trip for us was that Ingressive curated the experience to fit our needs - we got to meet with a wide range of GitHub developers, customers, and organizations utilizing our product to get a holistic view of how we can best engage current and future users on the platform.

In six short days, we accomplished more in Lagos than we could have in many months here in Boston

In six short days, we accomplished more in Lagos than we could have in many months here in Boston. The vibrancy, energy and events of the Tour of Tech enabled us to experience firsthand the commitment to a strong Nigeria from diverse sectors: government leaders, business women, entrepreneurs, educators, and business men. We are grateful to making our first experience in Africa full of fun and success.

Before Ingressive and Tour of Tech, we didn’t know where to start

I’m ready to co-invest with experienced African tech investors. Before Ingressive and Tour of Tech, we didn’t know where to start without boots on the ground. The Ingressive team are true networkers and made investing in the continent digestible and accessible.

Ingressive has major connections with a powerful and supportive network

Within the sphere of the African technology start-up environment, Ingressive has major connections with a powerful and supportive network. You’ll go from lunch galas with premier businessmen & women, to private pitch competitions, and finally back up to the hotel rooftop looking out onto the Atlantic. You’ll learn more from this immersion than you’d ever figure out from the remote vantage of the United States

— Joseph Glickman, Impact Fund Manager of Glickman Trust.
