🇨🇮 Thanks to all the participants in the MEET Côte d'Ivoire Ecosystem event, which was a wonderful opportunity for entrepreneurs from the Ivorian diaspora to meet all the players in the Ivorian entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Thanks to this event, entrepreneurs were able to make progress in their structuring, meet all the MEET Africa 2 prizewinners and discover their inspiring projects, as well as all the public and private players in support and financing who contribute to the development of entrepreneurship in CĂ´te d'Ivoire.
MEET Africa 2 experts were able to share the program's concrete achievements, as well as ecosystem diagnostics, and discuss them with all the players involved, with a view to improving support for diasporic entrepreneurs.

The event, which closed the MEET Africa 2 cycle of events, was organized in partnership with the Direction Générale de la Diaspora (DGD), the Société d'État Côte d'Ivoire PME (CI PME) and the Centre de Promotion des Investissements en Côte d'Ivoire (CEPICI).

The 120 attendees were treated to :

  • 2 panel discussions dedicated to the diaspora entrepreneur's career path, best practices and feedback on support in the dual Europe-Africa space.
  • 1 business lunch and 1 B2B and B2G networking event, facilitating more than 100 business contacts.
  • 1 networking cocktail with booths featuring entrepreneurs from the diaspora (MEET Africa 2 winners), showcasing their products and services.
