Cacavéli Bluezone: a breeding ground for future leaders in business

September 2014

Over 800 young entrepreneurs hoping to start their own businesses have benefited from a “helping hand” training course through the Cacavéli Bluezone.


A veritable highway for information exchange between young entrepreneurs, this two-month training course, which took place between June and July last, was managed by the FAIEJ (Youth Economic Initiatives Support Fund).

The goal of these courses is to provide the youth of Togo with the knowledge necessary to transform their ideas and projects into SMEs, which will create value and jobs.  During the training, the focus was on structuring the objectives of the business project, managing the project, seeking funding, and eventually setting up and managing the business.

Over 800 young people participated in the workshop.

The FAIEJ is one of the structures put in place by the government to support youth entrepreneurial initiatives as part of its fight against unemployment and under-employment. Today, the FAIEJ is a strategic partner of the Bluezone, facilitating themed events related to youth employment.
