Today, I’m excitedly announcing the first edition of the Lagos [Startup Digest].

For some weeks now, I’ve been discussing with Chris McCann, co-founder  of Startup Digest, a weekly curated email list of the best startup and technology events in over 15 cities around the world.

Startup Digest started in Silicon Valley and in 15 weeks has already attracted over 15,000 subscribers and received endorsements from some  of the most high profile entrepreneurs and venture capitalists in Silicon Valley – many of whom have encouraged us to expand the list to  Lagos, Nigeria because they believe that there is a massive amount of unrealized potential in the startup community here.

Here’s what it looks like:

Lagos [StartupDigest]

I offered to curate the Lagos [Startup Digest] in order to share the knowledge of the best Lagos events for techies and entrepreneurs with others and to better understand the startup community here.

To subscribe to the Lagos [Startup Digest], visit and select Lagos [Startup Digest] on the list. If you know of other events, want to host your own event, or know people we should reach out to, please email me at loy [at]

Even TechCrunch featured Startup Digest a few weeks ago, where they called it “a pretty smart idea” and it’s attracted folks like Guy Kawasaki and other Silicon Valley heavyweights to subscribe to the list as well.

Update: The TechCrunch article about StartupDigest above has been removed due to a breach of trust by the former TC writer, Daniel Brusilovsky. This is a Google’s cache of the article.
