We observe frequently that the ideas or solutions presented are very intriguing, but are otherwise lacking in the written form, organization, and idea presentation. I suggest that young applicants take some time to reply to the questionnaires present in the application forms, so that their applications and value proposals are clear”, he suggests.

Beyond the Cabo Verde Digital Program, funded by the Cape Verde Government, among other public and private entities, Cabo Verde Digital supports several other programs focusing on youth entrepreneurship, contemplating skill development and the creation of technology-based projects.

For example, the Go Global program, currently in its fourth edition, selects Cape Verdean start-ups to take part in overseas conferences, guaranteeing major visibility and the possibility for internationalization.

Additionally, the Kodê Verde program intends to promote skills in programming, as well as the acquisition of other digital skills.
