The platform is an initiative of the State Secretariat for Innovation and Vocational Training (SEIFP) and the Directorate General of Telecommunications and Digital Economy (DGTED). It was created to share with the different players of the ecosystem of the digital economy, the strategic plan of Cape Verde for this area, in order to know what is planned and give their contributions to the strategy. Contributions will be received by March 17 and April 5, 2019, the final version of the strategic plan will be presented to the public. The idea of the platform is also to create an ICT community, which is very close to SEIFP and DGTED, actively participating in the implementation of the strategy developed.

It was launched last March 1, in a meeting promoted by the State Secretariat for Innovation and Professional Training and the General Directorate of Telecommunications and Digital Economy, with the different actors of the national ICT scenario, especially incubators and technology-based companies, to share the general lines of the Strategic Plan for the Digital Economy of Cape Verde and to listen to the different actors. Tax incentives for ICT were also shared.
