Capp'O Sud offers three main types of services:

  • Pre-incubation of project leaders: assisting and structuring a project with good development potential until it is launched on the market with coaching along the way and then connecting it to the local ecosystem of the country where the project is to be implemented;
  • Specific expertise in the fields of agriculture and agribusiness in the countries of the South: development of sectors, creation of farms, sourcing, sizing of agribusiness processing units, product innovation, development of ICTs for sectors, etc. This expertise can be provided by senior experts, students supervised by senior experts or researchers;
  • Networking of the project leader in the project implementation ecosystems (co-incubation, etc.).  

The originality of our offer is that it allows us to meet the needs of our African students, to support them in their business creation project, but also to mobilise them to support external project leaders to carry out different types of expertise. In this way, this system allows for exchange of experience between different audiences in the African diaspora.
