(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroon’s minister of posts and telecommunications (Minpostel), Minette Libom Li Likeng, and Olivier Madiba, founder of the start-up Kiro’o Games, the first video game company in Central Africa, signed a convention through which, the ministry of posts and telecommunication will sponsor the registration of 2,000 ICT projects on the mentoring platform Kiro’o Rebuntu.
Started in June 2016 by Kiro’o Games, Kiro’o Rebuntu shares with young project bearers the 13 years of experiences of Kiro’o Games mainly in funds seeking.
“The mentorship is totally online and accessible 24h/24. Kiro’o Rebuntu grants access to an online guide of its method of fund seeking and a question/answers session. It normally costs CFA10, 000 but many young people who bear interesting projects can’t afford it due to their difficult living conditions. That is why Minpostel decided to sponsor the registrations (…) So, Kiro’o Games with the sponsorship of Minpostel, will share its experience in funding and company creation with 2,000 ICT project bearers” , the start-up explained in an official statement.
Between 2013 and 2015, Kiro’o Games raised CFA130 billion from international investors by creating its own fundraising methods. Based on that experience, the creator of the first made in Cameroon video game would like to advise some 10,000 project bearers.
