Sayna is joining forces with I&P Acceleration Technologies, and Miarakap to grow educational opportunities in the African continent. Sayna is the first Aftican Edtech company, and is working to make online training courses widely available in areas of Africa that are underdeveloped.

The new program will focus on two areas: an online training platform that delivers practical knowledge to online learners, and a “microtasking” platform that Sayna created.

By 2024 Sayna hopes to allow at least 8,000 people in Africa to gain the digital skills needed to work online, and also to train 3,500 people to work on its microtasking platform that provides IT support to the French-speaking world. The platform currently has a client base of 300 SMEs.

The co-founder and CEO of Sayna, Matina Razafimahefa, told the media,

“As a team, we are very proud of what we have accomplished so far. Our successes and failures have allowed us to truly understand our market so that we can now offer a solution that can truly reinvent access to the job market for junior developers. The best is ahead of us!”

Sayna is Africa’s first French-speaking and crowdsourcing platform launched in 2018.

The company brings career opportunities for young people and also solves digital problems in Africa.
Sayna allows users to learn how to develop IT skills at all levels of proficiency in a game-oriented model.

With this platform, Africans can move into micro jobs corresponding to their qualifications, and efficiently manage, organize and deliver projects.

Miarakap is an influencer investment firm dedicated to funding and supporting high-potential small and medium enterprises in Madagascar. In addition to its financial mission, another goal is supporting companies that create positive social, economic and environmental outcomes.

Launched in 2019, I&P Acceleration Technologies is a dedicated program for African digital startups led by Investisseurs & Partenaires (I&P).

I&P’s mission is to contribute to the emergence of the first digital startups in Africa and give them access to appropriate financial and technical means to accomplish goals.
