Transformers Summit Senegal 2019

The Transformers Summit is being organised in close partnership with the Islamic Development Bank and the Government of Senegal. Together, leveraging the many shared aims and commitments to using science, technology and innovation to solve development challenges in Senegal, West Africa, and beyond.

The Transformers Summit 2019 will take place at the Centre International de Conférences Abdou Diouf, in Dakar, Senegal.

The government of Senegal has shown commitment to supporting entrepreneurs and innovators through changes to policy and infrastructure.

In 2018, Senegal announced the roll out of a new $50 million fund for digital projects, specifically aimed at women and young people. The government aims to train an additional 100,000 entrepreneurs and is in the process of streamlining the administrative procedure to start a business.

The latest measures to support entrepreneurs are part of Senegalese president Macky Sall’s pro-business economic masterplan.

The Sall administration has also taken steps to attract foreign investment, promising international firms that they’ll get the same treatment as their domestic counterparts and their property will be protected.

With this, Senegal has positioned itself as a key economic influencer in the West African region, and beyond.
