VMK was founded in 2009. Due to lack of financing, the enterprise was first launched under the legal status of Establishment (Individual Firm) specializing in interactive communication and Internet technologies, a status that VMK has kept for two years and half.
Today, VMK is a corporation (PLC) with a capital of franc XAF 250 million (USD 500,000). The corporation has especially branched out in the design of general public products (tactile tablet and Smartphone). In the meantime, VMK still offer services in Internet communication like before (via its Web Agency) and the design of corporate web and mobile applications (essentially on these terminals).
VMK comes from Vumbuka, a word derived from Kikongo (a language widely spoken in southern and western Congo, especially in the city of Pointe-Noire), which means “Wake up!”
The main objective is to « enable access to technology for the general public ». The corporation has targeted Africa (to get started…) on the tactile tablet market (general public and education-based purpose), Smartphone in the range entry segment (to begin…). The strategy of VMK is to supply high-quality products capable of competing with those from the world’s main brands. VMK products are designed with Africa-centered values, added up to a price accessible to the general public
