Jenmedia, a startup incubated at CTIC Dakar, is in the spotlight this month. Indeed, the digital visual communication agency has been selected for the African Rethink Award (ARA) 2018, which will take place at the Abidjan Chamber of Commerce on October 4 and 5.
Jenmedia is a creative digital agency. Its credo is to support companies from start to finish in their digitisation process: digital marketing strategy, web and mobile development, customised software packages and graphic design.
According to Jim Etienne Ndiaye, co-founder and Director of the agency: “Our bet is that digital technology is a lever for development, for which Africa is on an equal footing with the rest of the world. It is with this in mind that Jenmedia has implemented innovative products with a high impact. Our flagship project this year was the “MyFemininity.com” platform, which brings together a community of African women as agents of change. 2017 was a year of growth for the agency, which has grown by acquiring a dozen new renowned clients and giving 14 young people, including 9 women, the chance to find a place in the professional world. We hope that 2018 will be the year of maturation”.
When asked about the keys to their current success, Yacine Dia Ndiaye, co-founder of Jenmedia, replied: “Our success is based on the successful management of our projects, quality service and listening to our customers. Jenmedia, c´est a certain know-how, which we are always keen to build on. »
The African Rethink Awards (ARA) is a program developed by the Land of African Business and dedicated to African youth, this program rewards innovation of African start-ups and accelerates their development, they are a start-up competition, awarding five trophies, open to young entrepreneurs from Francophone countries.
After a rigorous selection, 50 entrepreneurs presented their initiative. After a first selection in June, Jenmedia was included in the list of finalists published on 15 July 2018.
The closing evening of the ARA on 5 October will see the presentation of four awards: Grand Prize, Women’s Entrepreneurship Prize, Prize for the Best Ivorian Start Up and Agri-Tech Prize.
Good luck to Jenmedia!
