About the sponsor


The OuagaLab is an innovation centre where young people can meet, work together and pool their skills to meet the challenges faced by Africa in this millennium. Most importantly, this site serves as an ideal framework to raise the awareness of Burkina Faso’s youth on the stakes they are facing, to inspire a spirit of creativity, collaboration and experience sharing. The Ouagalab addresses the problem of youth employability and a lack of awareness about entrepreneurship as a solution to help wide-ranging actors make their own contributions toward sustainable, harmonious development. Ouagalab’s vision for the next five years is: – Innovation, presenting innovative solutions to Burkina Faso’s various business sectors and training a new generation of innovators. – the digital world, as the innovations brought by the institutions of Ouagalab rely predominantly on digital, still a somewhat embryonic sector in Burkina Faso – Youth, the young Burkinabè generation is a catalyst for the economy, though still suffers a lack of employment or is under-employed. Youth is the foundation for Ouagalab as it uses digital to generate innovation in the various sectors.
