Pitch Your Startup Idea: With his Kondjigbalê App, Yvon Koudam wins first prize

(Togo First) - Yvon Koudam won the “Pitch your startup idea” contest, the pinnacle event of Togo’s first Student Digital Entrepreneurship Forum (FENES) launched last Friday.

With “Kondjigbalê,” a project promoting an online health booklet, the youth was awarded a prize of XOF500,000 (under the innovation and digital entrepreneurship category). “We came from far and are nowhere near our goal yet but we have made progresss,” declared Koudam.

At the second place was Sitsopé Sekpona from the University of Lomé who developed a mini-generator. She was awarded XOF300,000 for best social entrepreneurship project.

The third and last prize (Women entrepreneurship category) amounting to XOF200,000 was awarded to Abida Gbati from the University of Kara who came up with a project named “Health for All”.    

Let’s indicate that 20 contestants ran in the final stage of the forum. One of the participants lauding the event said it came at the right time as many “Togolese are unaware of opportunities available in the digital sector.”  

Meanwhile, Joël Agboglo, CEO of Enginnova which organized the even in partnership with institutions such as the German Cooperation, the French embassy and others, said “our goal to make this forum the country’s biggest tech entrepreneurship event has been achieved.”
