Cafe Neo And Big Cabal Media Get $250,000 From Lagos Angel Network

May 31, 2016

Lagos Startup DealDay which has event put together by the Lagos Angel Network saw two recipients get $250,000 from its maiden edition. These ventures are Cafe Neo and Big Cabal Media.

Although the event took place on March 31, 2016, the names of the recipients were not released until of recent.

One recipient Cafe Neo, is major player in the coffee chains space in Nigeria and currently have eleven outlets spread across the commercial city of Lagos.

The other, Big Cabal Media is the media company responsible for online like TechCabal, Zikoko and Radar. No doubt they have shown how the power of the media can be used for good as was they were instrumental to the enlightenment of Nigerians about the Ebola Virus, with the creation of EbolaFacts.

Lagos Startup DealDay is a quarterly investment process run by the Lagos Angel Network (LAN). It brings together LAN members, other angel investors and Lagos startup ecosystem players in a process where the very best startup ventures (across sectors) are guaranteed funding. Using Lagos StartUp DealDays as a vehicle, LAN is targeting to raise N100 million from its members and the early stage investment community for Lagos startups during 2016.

The second edition of the Lagos StartUp DealDay is set to take place June 30, 2016 and interested startups can apply here.

Finance people tend to only see a bottom line so I wonder if the Neo brothers are in this for the long haul or they're readying an exit

Not our words but those from our friends at EatDrinkLagos – but we are growing quickly not because we are “Finance Boys” looking for an exit. The truth is that and for our growing customer base, we are very keen on spreading Neo love to as many as possible.

Cafe Neo big boysWe are also coffee addicts, so for selfish reasons, it improves our quality of life to have so many locations around us.  Speaking of Big Boys with money, there have been rumours that Starbucks is coming to town.  Truth be told since ever since we  first heard of this we have been kneeling down and praying that it is true – not because we think they will buy us (lai lai!!) but because nothing would be better for promoting coffee culture in Nigeria. So anyone who knows a good babalawo or effective shrine, give us a shout and we can use alternative channels to invite Starbucks.

Till they come sha, we’ll do our best to expand to a location near you –  If you do know of any ideal locations – help us out and send us an email.  Mainland Lagos we haven’t forgotten you and we are currently negotiating on locations in Yaba, Surulere & Ikeja.

…or in the words of Baba Segi, rat no dey chop  provisions of person wey no dey sleep.

wtfudge!!!!

No relevance really but we heard it last week and it sounded cool.  We suggest you try and use it over the next week in meetings and see what the reaction is. Hours of fun – trust us!!!

Some good news – bubble tea is in the house!!!  Yes, regulars know that it’s been on our menu for a while but we were never quite ready.  But now we are, so rush to our Adeyemi Lawson or Sanusi Fafunwa locations – order and enjoy.  For those who haven’t tried it yet or think our prices are too high, you can try this recipe at home.  Take one neo clear cup, throw in about 10-20 small balls of garri (the harder the better), ideally dyed to be the color of dark amala. Pour in about 3 cans of peak carnation milk, dunk in one bag of lipton and  add sugar to taste. Then…take selfie of yourself drinking in a sophisticated manner and post via instagram or twitter @mycafeneo. (psst: our accountant forced us to put this line as a not-so-subtle hint for more customer engagement on social media.  The more you post, the less we spend on marketing so abeg epp us!)

Back in the real world, we have been enjoying healthy patronage from our learned friends from Law School. The first time they were spotted, it felt like they were en route to a cocktail party in their white on black finery. This was around 11am so we thought they had dressed up early to beat the accursed island traffic. But what did it for us was the fact that at the end of every sentence they would finish with words like ipso factum or ratio decidendi – It was  actually a very confusing period for some of our new baristas who would just stare at the lawyer wondering whether this was a strange strain of fone or maybe corpus deliciti was a variant of caramel machiatto. Just playing o – do let us know how we can serve you better ( please don’t say more electrical points).

That’s all for this week – thanks for all the feedback and keep your suggestions coming.  We normally have a secret entry below by one our baristas but this time, we learnt in advance the identity of this week’s guest.  You and I know her as the eclectic Precious but we learnt that there is an alter ego known as  Noni PPJ – enjoy and happy listening!
