Yes, indeed! After going through all the hurdles that you can only go through in Cameroon to open up an office, we’re glad to announce that ActivSpaces’ incubator in Douala will open its doors on Saturday, June 15th.
Djoss.tv, the winner of the Cameroon Startup Challenge 2012 is the first team that will make use of this space. We’re eager to get in touch with the several other Douala-based startups that have engaged us over the past few months seeking incubation. Consider this another open call for membership applications.
Startups incubated at our Douala hub will be able to benefit from a front street location in the heart of Akwa, surrounded by businesses and the energizing buzz of commerce. Mentors from our powerful benefactor, AppsTech, will scarcely be further than a flight of stairs away. This is going to be the place for ventures that feel they’re ready for action.
We’re inviting the entire technology startup community to join us at ActivSpaces Douala to celebrate this milestone. We’ve planned some creative activity so that we can own the space and the moment together. So come prepared for fun and refreshments and let’s get ready to activate Douala!
Where: ActivSpaces Douala, AppsTech Building, Akwa.
When: Saturday, June 15th, 2:00 PM
We’ll be doing a brief presentation on ActivSpaces, our mission and our milestones. We want the community to understand that they own this space and it’s there to support innovation. We’re looking for ambassadors to help spread this message.
Also, ActivSpaces Douala is still a quite bare. We’re going to be getting our hands a little dirty to decorate the space and imbue it with our spirit. So come prepared to participate and feel free to bring props of your own. We’ll end the day with networking and refreshments. Look forward to seeing you there!
