Next May 31, Lomé will host Togo’s first digital entrepreneurship and student forum

(Togo First) - The first digital entrepreneurship and student forum (FENES) will begin next May 31 at the Palais des Congrès of Lomé. This was disclosed yesterday by the event’s organization committee at a press conference.

Promoted by Enginnova and backed by the German cooperation, the forum aims to “democratize and foster digital entrepreneurship among students and young startups,” according to Joël Atakpa, CEO of ZONOA.  

Exhibitions, exchange panels and a contest rewarding digital projects will take place during the occasion. For the contest, three prizes will be given. The first is the entrepreneurial innovation prize (CFA500,000), social entrepreneurship prize (CFA300,000) and the female entrepreneurship prize (CFA200,000). Each winner of these prizes will attend the 2020 Vivatech fair in Paris.

Overall, more than 200 candidates registered for the contest and only 20 have been selected.

According to Joël Agboglo, CEO of Enginnova, the FENES should become Africa’s Vivatech.

Carina Lange, representative of the German cooperation, said “this event is a great platform for young entrepreneurs in Togo. It is very important to show the public what the youth are doing in terms of digital innovations and how they live digital transformation.”
