General assembly meeting of the ICON project

Event Overview

The General assembly meeting of the Innovative Cooperative on Nutrition (ICON) gathers all its 16 Ashoka fellows members, in Dakar, Senegal to review all the activities carried out since its last meeting in March 2018 in Ouagadougou, Burkina and validate the action plan for the next 12 months.

More specifically, the ICON members discuss the market studies of Burkina and Nigeria, the report documenting the innovations of all its members and the proposed business plan. They will also participate in working groups around the collective brand and the online trading platform. Coaching sessions are also organised with each individual member to assess their readiness to adopt the brand and join the training platform. Then, individual development plans will be elaborated by Ashoka and Kinomé. A 12-months detailed action plan for the entire cooperative is put together in parallel to the individual plans.
