As part of the implementation of the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF)’s programs : "Promoting employment through entrepreneurship among young people and women in Francophone sub-Saharan African countries" and "Digital Integration", the Economic and Digital Francophonie Department is organizing a networking workshop within the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) dedicated to francophone entrepreneurs.

The OIF will launch the Réseau des Entrepreneurs francophones which targets Francophone actors in the world of entrepreneurship and innovation.

The workshop takes place and will pursue the following objectives:

  • mobilizing francophone entrepreneurs in order to increase their participation and visibility within the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN);
  • initiating a joint plan of mobilisation of the Francophone actors in order to enable them by creating partnerships, exchanging their best practices and business opportunities and globally increasing their access to international markets.
