Berling (Germany), December 2019. An important part of the GreenTec Capital Africa Foundation’s (GCAF) mission to support the African entrepreneurial ecosystem is the promotion of linkages between relevant stakeholders and actors on the continent. This past November, GCAF arranged for a meeting between Erick Yong, CEO of GreenTec Capital GmbH and Co-Founder of GCAF and HE Komi Sélom Klassou, Prime Minister of Togo and his delegation.
The meeting took place on November 20th, 2019 in Berlin, Germany, and provided Mr. Yong with the opportunity to discuss investing in Togolese start-ups with the Prime Minister, as well as promoting digital start-ups. Erick was able to i discuss GCAF with the Prime Minister, as well as to introduce him to the support program the Foundation developed with the Agence Française de Development including interest free loans for promising entrepreneurs. the €15 Million Seed Fund.
The positive and productive meeting resulted in a commitment by Mr. Yong and GreenTec to visit the Togolese Republic in the near future, to learn more about the Togolese entrepreneurial ecosystem and to identify key organizations and actors that are already supporting entrepreneurs in Togo. GCAF will also be very interested to learn more about the Togolese ecosystem and the actors within it and looks forward to be able to promote connections between Togolese ecosystem actors, entrepreneurs and investors.
