Suguba in partnership with Mercy Corps and the French Development Agency is organising its second investment readiness programme in French-speaking West Africa to support the most promising start-ups in the digital sector.
Eight Francophone West African start-ups were selected for the programme including Agripol, Mousso, Dothan, Eneza, CinetPay,
Carfics, Shop Me Away, and Kamtar.
The selected start-ups will be trained and mentored by international and local experts in a tailor-made program to increase their brand visibility and give them access to potential partners and investors.
Flagship activities include two one-week residential training sessions in Dakar, Senegal, and another in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, offering entrepreneurs the opportunity to develop their professional network and learn from mentors, peers, and local and international partners.
The residential training in Dakar will conclude with a pitch at the second edition of the Francophone Africa Investment Summit where entrepreneurs will present their start-ups to a large audience of new technology experts, investors, large companies, experts and media.
