Getting ready to hit the ground…
In May we made a visit in Cote d’Ivoire with a goal to obtain institutional support and received a Warm Welcome from Ivorian Officials.
In July, as local partner, we organized the Demo Africa City Innovation Tour in Abidjan, to select ivorian startups to take part in the international event in Morocco this month.
Our Research & Evaluation team has been conducting a scan of the Tech Ecosystem Landscape over the past quarter.
Our Program Development team is now focused on initiating a Pilot Program by end of year!
We are continuing to grow our US-based team, forming an External Affairs Committee, as well as our local team in Côte d’Ivoire!
We have ongoing partnership conversations with Google, Seedstars (Seedspace), Ernst & Young, and The Vault.
We are looking forward to kicking off our Fundraising effort at SOCAP ’18! The largest conference to bring together impact investors, philanthropists and social entrepreneurs.
