(Business in Cameroon) - Maibeta Inc, a startup located at Silicon Mountain in Buéa, officially launched a fundraising campaign to mobilize $35,000 (a little more than CFA19 million) this day, May 2, 2018, and it will end on May 31, 2018.  

According to an official statement, the subscription will be collected through the indiegogo.com and the different mobile money operators.  

Bamaj Namata, the founder, reveals that thanks to these funds, the startup will develop a digital platform listing technicians qualified in renovation, repair or construction works so as to be able to create a network of 500,000 professionals (underemployed or jobless for the time being) by 2022.  

In the long term, this innovation will help increase the need for technicians leading to a boost in their revenues and an improvement of their living conditions. It will also favor the management of urban spaces. All in all, the platform will give rise to a new generation of trusted, credible and highly qualified technicians in Cameroon”, he said.

Let’s note that the platform launched in 2015 is the result of one of the founder’s personal experience. Indeed, one night, in 2014, he noticed that his sink was leaking. For days, he was unable to find a technician to fix it for him. Even after the works the plumber he found did, the sink was leaking days after. It then occurred to him that he could build a digital platform thanks to which technicians selected based on their performances could be hired with a simple mouse-click.
