Minute of silence
We will respect a minute of silence for Assane Seck, co-founder and Chief Technical Officer (CTO), Celtouch LLC, Sénégal, creator of Djanoa, and co-founder Mobile Monday Dakar.
Assane Seck has been at the center of the mobile ecosystem in Senegal as an entrepreneur and philanthropist. There is not one person working in mobile who did not know him and his well-known, communicative smile. He left us too early and we will miss him. He created Djanoa, an SMS Cloud Solution for Senegal.
