I am Ludovic Biyong, computer engineer trained in France. I am the founder of the PA2M QUANTUM start-up and the Cameroon news site camnews.com
How did you get the idea to start your business?
In 2013, I created two companies, PA2M Quantum and camernews.com a general information website about Cameroon, 100% run by robots.

We want to change a reality by finding digital solutions to solve our community problems
We want to be a pioneer of a new era of innovation leaving Africa to the world
home service industry redesigned in a mobile world centered
our technology connects customers with our national network of independent carriers.
By leveraging technology, we can give small carriers a chance of success.
In exchange for a monthly membership fee of 1500 CFA residents of a neighborhood will be able to benefit from a garbage disposal service. We donate the funds to Pik’ERS 100FCA by bin collected and recycled.
Once garbage collected we will be able to draw algorihtmic models of data and make the prediction on the health risks because we will be able to know what one consumes the inhabitants. We enter your home by the trash.

What is the problem solved by PICKUP?
Solidarity is a strong dynamic that characterizes our communities and neighborhoods!
The PICKUP smart platform has been inspired by this dynamic, because it allows us to combine our efforts for the collection and recycling of household waste but also for water supply in households.
Indeed PICKUP is an already operational community platform based on AI and machine learning linking households and people willing to perform small jobs. For a fee, these households will benefit from the collection and recycling of their garbage or water supply.
The two types of workers on our platform, workers and households, are geolocated. Workers connected to the platform can receive in real time on their smartphone an alert concerning the task to be performed and the location of the household concerned.
The monthly subscription per household is 1500F and the mode of subscription and the mode of payment of the rendered services are digitalized.
Thanks to its dynamic PICKUP offers not only jobs or income supplements, but especially in a spirit of solidarity this platform comes to help us solve the problem of garbage collection and recycling.
With PICKUP it is hand in hand that we clean up our neighborhoods to fight against the insalubrity and proliferation of diseases such as malaria!
With PICKUP it is hand in hand that we generate jobs!
