MobileSenegal (http://mobilesenega.org, http://facebook.com/mobilesenegal) is the first initiative of its kind in a Francophone country in Africa. It was founded in 2008 under the umbrella of Pace University in the US and evolves in collaboration with partners across Senegal and beyond. Its mission is to build capacity in mobile technology by facilitating the introduction of mobile courses in educational institutions and organizing activities for the wider community. It is managed by passionate professionals who are "walking the talk and talking the walk".
To date, more than 250 participants completed 2- to 7-day boot camps and competitions, and more than 30 applications were developed (7 of these apps are in the Nokia Store and Google Play). Apps developed during boot camps were finalists or winners at competitions: Nokia Calling All Innovators Competition (judge choice prize in 2009), GSMA Mobile Health Students' Competition (finalist in 2012), Data Uncovered (winner in 2012), and WSA-mobile (finalist for Senegal in 2012).
MobileSenegal launched the Mobile Innovations Dakar meetup and was behind the launch of Mobile Monday Dakar to build a sustainable community of professionals around mobile technology
