Tell us about your project: 

During my numerous trips to Senegal, I met many entrepreneurs who, for lack of means, outlets and visibility, were unable to develop their business. This is where Siby&Co was born. 

The project consists in setting up a multi-service commercial platform which will aim to : 

Facilitate trade between Africa and Europe, in particular France

Connecting local and EU entrepreneurs

Enable stakeholders to have visibility via our collaborative marketplace.

We are targeting the organic market, the made in Senegal market in food, cosmetics, handicrafts, ready to wear and services (real estate, tourism, household services, etc.).


Why this choice: It is a booming market with a high demand and a large supply capacity. 

These rapidly developing quality sectors need new actors to : Boost, modernise and export nationally and internationally the available and profitable resources

What does the MEET AFRICA programme offer you? 

For the moment, we are in the early stages of our support, but the support programme put in place by MEET Africa, such as the contacts, the quality of advice and exchanges, is in total agreement with our expectations. 

To be able to undertake in our country of origin, to participate in the economic development in an eco-responsible way and thus to connect the different actors of tomorrow's Africa present on the continent and in Europe is one of the most motivating things and that we particularly like.

We are sure that the MEETAFRICA 2 programme will bring us only positive results in our entrepreneurial adventure.
