Concree offers virtual and in-person incubation programs to foster entrepreneurship in Africa.

Concree is a Senegal-based incubator, which designs and manages solutions and programs to help early-stage startups grow from ideation to scalable business models. It was founded, in 2014, by Babacar Birane, a project manager by training, and Abdoul Sy, its chief technology officer.  

The incubator focuses on developing the creative potentials of its coachees, supporting determined entrepreneurs in their efforts to create innovative, sustainable, and impactful businesses. It is always in support of selected entrepreneurs from the ideation stage to the first sale.  

It has developed several coaching solutions, including LezGo, LezGo Light, and Wekomkom. The latter is an open incubation platform designed to help startups transform their ideas into products ready to be taken to markets. It connects entrepreneurs to upskilling, financing, and business development opportunities. 

LezGo allows entrepreneurship support institutions to attract entrepreneurs and work in perfect collaboration with their incubation team and entrepreneurs and also review and improve their coaching activity.

LezGo Light, on the other hand, fosters collaboration and empowers users with dynamic tools. It also allows users to measure the impact of their coaching with monitoring and evaluation tools.  

Apart from its tech solutions, Concree also collaborates with partners on entrepreneurship support projects. One of those projects is the Falling Walls Lab (June 8, 2023), an event during which participants present their innovative ideas. In its eight years of existence, Concree has supported 250 entrepreneurs through its programs, 3,000 entrepreneurs through its digital solutions, and worked with 20 institutional clients. Among the start-ups supported by the company are Aywajieune, an online platform that facilitates the purchase of fish and seafood, and Tolbi, a Senegalese agricultural technology company.
