To stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation in Togo, the local campus offers training programs, startup assistance, and co-working spaces. The initiative encourages the application of technology to address challenges in various sectors, including education, agriculture, and health.

Djanta Tech Hub, a technology campus in West Africa, is striving to become a leading reference point for technological entrepreneurship and training in new digital professions. The initiative, launched by the Togolese government, aims to foster entrepreneurship, creativity, and economic growth through digital technology, innovation, and research.

Established in 2018, the campus spans 3,000 square meters and supports the growth of Togo’s key economic sectors by incorporating information and communication technologies (ICT). It concentrates its efforts on a range of sectors, including education, agriculture, green technologies, health, financial inclusion, and more.

The Djanta Tech Hub plans to achieve its goals through various components. These include the Djanta Academy, a digital training excellence center; the Djanta Start accelerator and incubator; and NanaTech, a space dedicated to female entrepreneurship. The campus also provides a connected café area, meeting and conference rooms, and a one-stop service for all startup procedures.

The campus features a prototyping and research laboratory known as Djanta Lab, which is designed to be a hub for a diverse group of experts, including engineers, designers, students, and innovators. The lab is equipped with testing tools and platforms (Android, iOS, Firefox, etc.), a 3D printer, and augmented reality glasses.

Djanta Tech Hub also offers a coworking space where entrepreneurs, project leaders, and students from across Togo can collaborate. This space fosters the co-creation and co-development of digital applications, bringing together the initiatives of young people and providing a conducive environment for discovery, innovation, and creativity.
