Located in Calavi, 500 meters on the left in the street opposite FECECAM, WaDjoko is a new coworking space, launched on February 12, 2016. Its warm, design and friendly premises were imagined for entrepreneurs, freelancers or people looking for an office for a few hours or a few months. What is a coworking space? It is a workplace that brings together two concepts: a shared workspace, but also a network of workers encouraging exchange and openness. It is an ecosystem that becomes an alternative for those who encounter difficulties at the start of their projects, to find (rent) an office, equip it properly and benefit from support (technical and / or financial). The same principle applies to those who have just opened their doors in Calavi. Called WaDjoko which means in Yoruba language “Come sit down”, this space was initiated by the Benin-Ghanaian Sylvanus Kwame Diogo. “Finding an office and equipping it is quite difficult and even amounts to an obstacle course for all young entrepreneurs; the means to afford it being limited, even non-existent. As a result, working from home (garage, living room, bedroom, etc.) has become an alternative, a solution certainly, but one that isolates from physical contact. It is from this observation that WaDjoko was born, “said Yasmine Jacquet, Space Lead, at the launch. WaDjoko is fundamentally characterized by its hybrid aspect, through the diversity of skills and knowledge of its members, improbable exchanges, cultures and actors, united around the values ​​of solidarity, mutual aid, sharing, trust. , respect and cooperation, to advance (together) projects. Open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the space has: – an open space with an area of ​​42 m2, air-conditioned, friendly and bright that can hold up to 20 people; – a private office with an area of ​​15 m2, air-conditioned, for your interviews and meetings in private. It can hold 4 people; – a meeting room with an area of ​​13 m2, air-conditioned, comfortable and fully equipped that can hold 8 to 12 people; – a conference room with an area of ​​80 m2, air-conditioned and fully equipped, which can hold 20 to 40 people; – a dining room with an area of ​​18 m2, kitchen area for dining, relaxation area for exchanges over a drink, space also equipped.

About The Author

CEO AfrikaTech

Comme beaucoup de personnes j’ai connu l’Afrique à travers des stéréotypes : l’Afrique est pauvre, il y a la guerre, famine… Je suis devenu entrepreneur pour briser ces clichés et participer à la construction du continent. J’ai lancé plusieurs entreprises dont Kareea (Formation et développement web), Tutorys (Plate-forme de e-learning), AfrikanFunding (Plate-forme de crowdfunding). Après un échec sur ma startup Tutorys, à cause d’une mauvaise exécution Business, un manque de réseau, pas de mentor, je suis parti 6 mois en immersion dans l’écosystème Tech au Sénégal. J’ai rencontré de nombreux entrepreneurs passionnés, talentueux et déterminés. A mon retour sur Paris je décide de raconter leur histoire en créant le média AfrikaTech. L'objectif est de soutenir les entrepreneurs qui se battent quotidiennement en Afrique en leur offrant la visibilité, les connaissances, le réseautage et les capitaux nécessaires pour réussir. L'Afrique de demain se construit aujourd'hui ensemble. Rejoignez-nous ! LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/boubacardiallo
