For a few days, Senegalese people have been able to benefit from a skills matching service, thanks to the senetalents.com platform. A brand innovation that will allow many people to offer or find a service.
The development of digital technology in Senegal is definitely a real laboratory for many young people wishing to embark on entrepreneurship. There are many opportunities and young Senegalese understand this by offering consumers a new way of consuming. It is with this in mind that Aliou Diaw, a former employee of jumia travel (ex jovago), Malamine Traoré and other young people who accompany them, launched the platform senetalents.com.
“This idea of launching this site was inspired by our daily life. We have many people in our country who have qualifications but are unemployed. With digital technology, we believe that these people can put their skills to good use by offering services on a platform dedicated to them, “explains Aliou Diaw, one of the promoters of the project. “We want to help young people, especially those in the informal sector to take full advantage of their know-how by offering them more visibility,” he adds.
The platform which is part of the logic of connection thus offers the possibility for everyone to register and offer a service (liberal professional), but also for anyone wishing to benefit from a service to find without difficulty a person who would meet the need. “Today if you are looking for a plumber, a housewife, a mechanic, a doctor, a coach for your children … etc, we give you the opportunity to do so. We hope that our service will be able to help as many people as possible, especially young people who have a job but are unable to get by, “concludes Malamine Traoré, also promoter of senetalents.com. The service, completely free for users, is available in many cities across the country, a major innovation for the self-employed and digital sector in Senegal.
