Tech Meets Entertainment Summit 2018

Tech Meets Entertainment Summit 2018

The Tech Meets Entertainment Summit (TMES) organised by Ingressive will hold on one day during the Tour of Tech Africa (October 25) at Zone Tech Park.

It is a conference designed for everyone in the tech ecosystem and the entertainment industry.

The Summit which has been themed Building investment ready companies in Nigeria will convene business leaders, entrepreneurs, actors, musicians and investors.

Ingressive believes that entertainers are missing out on the business aspect of their art.

"Entertainers have cracked a long sought after code of how to personally connect to those who value their brand. Unfortunately it is too often the business partners of our artists who profit most from this interaction…

As a result, Ingressive seeks to empower these artists, and influencers by showing them how to monetize their brand value.

Ingressives' other motivations include the understanding that:

  • artists are commonly sought after to invest in startups
  • artists are often asked to serve on boards as advisers to give founders credibility
  • entertainers possess the power to build a customer base over night
  • various communities see successful artists as thought leaders and symbols of hope

For the artists who would be attending this year's event there is an opportunity to:

  • learn what to look for when investing
  • connect with potential co-investment partners, solid business leads, informational resources, and ongoing support
  • learn how to monetize their following

Entertainers have done the hard work of engaging millions, I’d love to see what happens when we plug that power into the tech community to monetize… - Sean Burrowes, COO, Ingressive
