The CEO of Y Combinator, Michael Seibel, continued his tour of Nigeria on Tuesday with a visit to Ventures Platform, where he met with the founder of the Abuja-based innovation hub, Kola Aina; the co-founder and CEO of Paystack, Shola Akinlade, as well as owners and staff of several other start-ups in Nigeria’s capital city.

The United States-based Y Combinator is regarded as one of the world’s foremost spawning grounds for emerging tech giants.
