VibeCampo : The Next Big Social Media Disruption

Published

on

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

I (Brian Nyagol) founded VibeCampo while a student at the university. I have a background in Electrical & Electronics Engineering (BEng), and self-taught web software developer.

VibeCampo is a fulfilment of my passion in building systems that empower young people. Read on, as the story of our emergence is more compelling than my own.

We first launched in May 2014. At first, we only thought of creating something new that would come from Africa. My mantra has always been that Africa, especially Kenya has a place in the global innovation realm and that I was one of the people who would make it shine. Over time, we developed a liking for young people wanted to make their Life better since our platform was already targeting young campus students and alumni. So we pivoted our social network idea to be one with a small twist – A social network helping young people to Discover, Explore and Grow their Talents, Skills and Interests. This was in Late 2015.

We then started to build up features and resources that would allow this vision to be accomplished and came up with communities, goals and contests and collaboration mechanisms that would help young people to achieve and be who they want to be, with the help of others like them, or who they want to be. The features reflect out definition of success – collaboration, one goal/step at a time, exploration and fact-finding, mentorship and staying committed to the journey.

Your success factors 

Our success factors (KPIs) are the number of our users, Number of communities, Number of goals set up in those communities, Number of Goal Check-ins (Activity Sharing) and the level of interactions among different user groups within our system.

Our 2018 operations plan aims at having 300,000 users which are the major metric we use.

Your factors differentiating and disruptive compared to the existing 

We have not just made a social media platform, but we‘re making social networking more useful for empowering African young people, than stealing away their time, and limited resources. Many young people complain of not having an appropriate platform to showcase their talents and skills. We have done it.

Your business model  

We are just rolling out our revenue model this year. We are making money by running highly associative ads that will give our users value for their time, and our customers value for their money. We aim at building a huge audience network, within and without our ecosystem.

A few words about your competitors

We are competing against well-established companies and tech giants – Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp. We know these organizations are already too big to bend to the exact needs of young people, and advantage we plan to utilize 100% to give young people more value.

Globally, over 50% of companies square meters are not efficiently used. Those spaces are accounted as the second highest expense in a company’ balance sheet.

Collaborators are increasingly mobile and linked-up (flex office, remote working,…). This trend is likely to be confirmed, and for good reason, 94% of millennials do not perceive themselves as in-house workers.

Fabien Girerd, CEO of Jooxter, is an engineer who started his career in Paris, 25 years ago as a management consultant. He then joined the large corporation by running international SAP implementation projects and teams in major international companies such as Warner Lambert, GSK, Holcim, and Johnson Controls, where he held a c-level position as a EMEA Workplace director. While his work at Johnson Controls, Fabien noticed that the need to create a solution focus on Smart occupancy based on his experience helping global organisation improving their workplace usage.

Published

on

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

After founding the “ENISO TEAM” club at the National Engineering School of Sousse in 2015, I realized that the knowledge of robotics and technology can be acquired and used at an earlier age that helps unleash the creativity and imagination of the people.

Your products and services 

Our Product « Evokit » is a set of mechanical and electronic parts that can be assembled and programmed in order to deliver a revolutionary learning experience of new technologies which is submerged in amusement and knowledge.

To increase the fun, firstly we have integrated a set of documents that serve as a guide for children in their adventures and gives them a set of proposals for different uses and a large database of codes to try. Multiple sketches also were added as terrains for classical practical tests such as line following, obstacle avoidance, sumo …

Secondly, we’ve created an Android control application that serves as an alternative to control the robot. Because of its simplicity of use, the application was admired by all of those who tried it.

Evokit” was crafted with the purpose to be a suitable product that will contribute to the technological awakening among children starting from 8 years old. It is easy to assemble, easy to program and it is expandable according to the kids’ desire since we believe that the imagination must never have limits.

Our robot supports, among others, the different children’s visual programming languages, which are fast, easy to understand and requires no previous experience.

 

Your success factors 

Our team combine both the technical practice and the know-how gained through accumulated experience due to their contribution in scientific clubs and organizations and the different tests they elaborated with over 200 students across Tunisia that served to polish the different success of the product, in addition to their scientific knowledge and understanding of mechatronics, electronics, computer science and management.

 

Your factors differentiating and disruptive compared to the existing 

In our case, innovation is demonstrated through the mastery of the technology used to design and manufacture our product. The manufacturing technologies used were carefully chosen to be the latest in order to be taught in the process of learning in addition to the other scientific knowledge. The members of the EVOCRAFT team implemented their scientific, technical and managerial skills in order to move from the idea phase to the execution of the project.

 

Your business model  

Because of the wide variety of applications it offers, our product can address many customers such as primary schools, scientific clubs and associations, geeks and parents. Besides our main customers, some co-working spaces and training centres also were interested in the product which leads us to some important partnerships. We’ve started by focusing on the regions of Sousse, Monastir and Tunis since they have the biggest concentration of private primary schools and scientific organizations.   

Our revenue model is based basically on the selling of the product and the different accessories and add-ins. In addition to that, we offer specific tailored trainings for the teachers/trainers in the schools who wish to adopt our product in their courses. We intend, in the future, to enlarge our offers and diversify our products and accessories and to find new markets in the Mediterranean basin. 

 

A few words about your competitors

Multiple competitors exist on the international market such as Mblock, LEGO Mindstorm,… but the prices or the functions usually presented in such products don’t go along with our market’s demand. In order to compete with their offers, we worked on improving many competitive advantages: price, autonomy, rigidity, stability and the hackability in order to adapt them to the needs of our customers.
