March 2019 is an important date for the Digital Incubation Society of Gabon since it launched the first edition of its acceleration program Cohort Innovation 4.0. It is a support program for the implementation of innovative digital projects.
8 projects stand out
Following a call for projects launched in October 2018, which received 156 applications, and after several selection phases, 8 projects were selected to integrate the program and thus benefit from accelerated support over 3 months. The latter includes all the material and strategic tools necessary for the development and execution of the development strategy of their startups. Project promoters have received training in the field of entrepreneurship and digital technology, participated in practical workshops, and benefited from the opinions of the various experts put at their disposal.
Who are these startups and what were their goals
In entering the program the objectives of these startups were mainly to structure their project ideas, to understand the market or the environment in which they wanted to evolve, to determine the real existence of the need to be solved and then to define the adequate business model. Among these startups, there is Ca pay which has developed a solution of payment of wages in mass via the two operators of mobile telephony for the companies and administrations having employees or rights-holders unbanked. To date, Ca Pay has developed a functional prototype and met several companies, including Prima Services, CNAMGS and CNSS. A first pilot is underway with the CNAMGS which could deploy this solution in favor of beneficiaries of social benefits. Once the test is successful, a larger scale deployment will be considered.
