Togo: Lomé to host a youth entrepreneurship forum next month

(Togo First) - Lomé will host a forum for young entrepreneurs next month, on the 16 and 17. The forum, called National Congress for the Young Entrepreneurs of Togo (CoNJET) was announced on May 17 during a press conference organized by the Association of United Young Entrepreneurs for an Emergent Togo (JEUNE-Togo in French). The event will be held at the Palais des Congrès de Lomé.

The CoNJET is expected to gather 3,000 young entrepreneurs, including 1,000 from the interior of the country. The theme picked for the forum is “Ecosystem, performance, and Perspectives for youth entrepreneurship in Togo”.

"We have conducted a field analysis on the accompanying measures and their deployment. And we noticed that several young entrepreneurs close their businesses within three years of existence. This was the subject of our survey and it is after all that we have identified here and there that we decided to organize a national conference," said Well-off Boukpezi, president of Jeune-Togo.

He added that the upcoming forum aims to promote policies that make young entrepreneurs more resilient, amid current global crises–health and security. Emphasis will be put on sustainable, shared, and durable growth. 

This is the first time the forum will be held. It will include roundtables, training workshops, talks with technical and financial partners and young entrepreneurs, workshops, and works revolving around entrepreneurship, ways to reinvent support to the youth, dependence on public and private financing, and the perspective of government action on the MSMEs.
