First DiafrikInvest Investment Academy
This first "Investment Academy" of the DiafrikInvest acceleration programme brought together about thirty entrepreneurs, selected on the basis of their ability to generate a positive local impact, to benefit from the expertise of Effectus, a company specialised in strategy and investment consulting, particularly for companies (SMEs and start-ups). Thameur Hemdane, founder and president of Afrikwity, a pioneering equity crowdfunging platform in Africa, led this day of collective coaching. 
Following this event, the entrepreneurs accompanied by DiafrikInvest had the opportunity to close their Paris stay by participating in the Forum for the African diasporas 2019, by having a presence on the ANIMA Investment Network stand, and thus to benefit from the networking spaces, conferences, workshops and business opportunities present.
Forum for the African diasporas 2019
For the second consecutive year, ANIMA Investment Network, through DiafrikInvest, was major partner of the Forum for the African diasporas 2019, whose joint interests tend to bring an added value to the diaspora valuation and its involvement in the development of the continent.
After the intervention of Emmanuel Noutary, General Delegate of ANIMA, during the opening session, Abdelkader Betari, Director of the International Cooperation and Economic Promotion Division of the Oriental Agency (Morocco) and President of ANIMA, intervened during the workshop Doing Business in Morocco. The CJD Senegal also mobilised H.E. Sory Kaba, General Director of the Senegalese Abroad, who was able to speak at the workshop dedicated to Senegal.

This event has been the occasion for our teams to gather with Investment Promotion Agencies from the three countries represented, and also with some several entrepreneurs supported by the DiafrikInvest accelerator programme, present for this event.
Senegal Cyber Academy (SCA) develops educative, economic, social and/or cultural activities in the ICTS, benefiting pupils, students and people living in difficult social situations.
Supported by Samba NDiaye, its goal is to support and lead diverse innovative projects for the development of ICTS to facilitate both the professionalisation and the social inclusion.
Young and passionate entrepreneur, Cheikhna Sarr launched his start-up Outalma (which means ''search for me'' in Woloff) with the ambition of bringing innovative and efficient solutions to the problems of e-business development in Africa, by setting up relay points. Committed actor of the diaspora, he is one of the coordinator of the association Les Petites Gouttes which works for Senegal Development by fighting every form of exclusion.
Since June 2018, Cheikhna Sarr is one of the DiafrikInvest mentors and supports our Senegalese entrepreneurs, particularly on questions related to business development, access to markets and financing.
