Silicon Mountain, the leading tech innovation ecosystem in Cameroon has been shortlisted amongst the participants in the 2019 Africa-Europe Innovation Partnership to take place in Kenya.
To this effect, Silicon Mountain is sending 3 of its promising startups to showcase its dominant engineering nature to other startups, innovators, incubators and accelerators in Kenya.
Zuoix, ZuumPay and ActivSpaces are the three SM emissaries to Kenya. These three are known for their attempt to provide solutions to heartbreaking problems in Africa.
Zuoix is the only offensive information security company in west and central Africa. It develops information security tools both for offensive and defensive use.
Zuoix is well known in Africa for developing the Zoomed App, an SMS-based Tracking Device to Locate and Secure Cars. It’s marvelous how a car discusses with his car from a distance, offline to know it’s location, fuel level etc. Zuo Bruno, CEO and Founder of Zuoix will be representing there.
ZuumPay on the other hand is solving all e-payment problems. This payment aggregator allows users to perform a wide range of services and transactions on a global scale from instant cashless payments, local and international money transfer, Utility bill payments, Trade cryptos etc. Hence, continue solving and handling their financial needs no matter their location in the world.
One thing that is striking about this business idea, a person living in Germany can use his visa card to send money directly to his mother’s Mobile Money account in Ekona, Cameroon. Zuumpay will be represented by Ndamo Ndamo, its founder.
And ActivSpaces, one of the first Innovation hubs in Africa helping startups to transform ideas into solution-driven and Innovative businesses. It is widely recognized for the role it plays in building the capacity of young people.
The fact is, so many people may love your business idea, but cannot give a helping hand. This is where ActivSpaces challenges others. Valery Colong will be sitting in for ActivSpaces.
With this calibre of representatives at the symposium, Silicon Mountain is sure to get a fruit-yielding feedback.
Startups will pitch their business ideas at the summit with more focus on the tech ecosystem and how it components are solving real life problems especially in Africa.
Africa is known as a tech consumer not builder but one thing is certain, the few built from the mountain are always exceptional. The power and stronghold of the ecosystem lies in the ability for software engineers to build their own products from start to finish without depending on a third party component.
The Africa- Europe innovative partnership aims at supporting and connecting innovation and technology incubators and accelerators tapping into new markets. Silicon Mountain startups will connect with their peers and investors at the summit and look for ways to forge ahead.
