(Business in Cameroon) - The technopole Ocean Innovation Center (OIC) has signed a convention agreement with Microsoft. This was announced on February 28, 2018 by Jacques Bonjawo, a former Microsoft worker and creator of the technopole which was set up with the support of Cameroon’s government in Kribi.  

In the framework of this convention, “the two institutions will work together to identify the best ways for Microsoft to collaborate with the partner on technologies and strategies to help OIC-Kribi’s young entrepreneurs make better use of latest technologies and accelerate the digital transformation of African economies”.

Moreover, Microsoft commits to support the startups and offer various services such as access to BizSpark, resources for technical support, the organization of technical training and financial support to companies in the acceleration phase. 

For the record, the goal of OIC, inaugurated on July 11, 2017, by Louis Paul Motazé, minister of economy, is to develop the creative potential of the youth by facilitating their socio-economic insertion via the creation of high growth companies.
