Discover FORIMA

For two days, the Forum Innovation Made in Africa will be the occasion for you to immerse yourself in an innovative camp mixing panels, practical workshops and expert consultations. You can attend the final “Challenge Fund pitch” during which nine groundbreaking entrepreneurs will present their project before a jury.


The objective of this unprecedented event in Benin is to lay the foundations of a platform to help entrepreneurs design and launch innovative projects with a strong social impact especially in job creation. Thus, the PCTT program financed by the World Bank and Sèmè City will contribute to support entrepreneurship and innovation for the development of an inclusive and sustainable tourism in Benin, with the commitment of all the stakeholders involved.


The FORIMA is an opportunity for all the actors to collaborate around the principles of sharing knowledge, ingenuity and frugality that Sèmè City advocates.
