The VEhSEh team, one of ActivSpaces’ startups has been endorsed by the Director of the College of Technology, University of Buea Cameroon, Dr. Michael Ekonde Sone.
This is because this startup has proven to be one of the promising solution providers and businesses in Silicon Mountain. The team members are exceptionally committed to what they are doing.
VEhSEh is a start up that aims at “connecting the unconnected”. To Eruck Emmanuel, co founder of the start up, their wish is to influence people’s daily living with technology, hence, providing networks to areas that do not have is their own way of answering their call from God.
Their endorsement came on January 5 2018 by Dr. Sone who has taught most of the team members and also seen the vision of the team. The VEhSEh team and project is very feasible. Their project will go a long way to help most remote areas in Sub Saharan Africa that are out of mobile network connectivity. Doctors and patients will be able to communicate easily, farmers and peers will talk often while the various Ministries will have regular feedback from workers in the rural areas through VEhSEh’s network.
VEhSEh‘s problem solving stems from the fact that there are some remote places in Cameroon that cannot connect to the existing mobile networks. The inhabitants of these places difficulties connecting with those they want to. Moreover, some mobile phones have drastically been turned to fixed phones simply because the available mobile networks are spotted in some of these remote areas. This leaves the inhabitant of the said areas with no option than to glue their mobile phones at some fixed spots with network in order for them to make or receive calls.
ActivSpaces, the number one innovation Hub in Cameroon is proud to help initiatives like the VehSeh grow. This is one of the objectives of ActivSpaces-to incubate start ups by providing them with the necessary tools they need in growing their start ups. However, there is still room for other start ups to be incubated at ActivSpaces. All they need do is apply at www.activspaces.com or send their applications to email@example.com

Meaning of the name VEhSEh
VEhSEh means “WE” or “US” in the Kenyang language of the Bayangi people in Cameroon. The name signifies the things that they do to help others. The things that come out of us. It is the work of everybody. The founders of this startup preferred to use the common Kenyang language to describe what they are doing. They believe this makes the initiative sound more Cameroon-like and not foreign.
