We see possibility...

AfCFTA, Accelerating intra-African trade and boosting Africa’s trading position in the global market by strengthening Africa’s common voice and policy space in global trade negotiations, represents the renaissance of trans saharan trade.

We see cloud adoption...

Sourced from a 2015 article, this overview of just 102 respondents reveals an ever present trend and need gap that exists.

We see technology adoption...

When we begin to understand the Cloud adoption benefits, we then realise that our economy benefits from the easy access to technology to explore many current and yet to be developed applications.

Source from a 2015 article that surprisingly still depicts the growth.

We see improved connectivity...

Telecom operators across the african continent are accelerating mobile broadband coverage and also upgrading 2G sites to 3G or 4G. Additionally, mobile data is progressively becoming more affordable across the African continent.

From what we were able to source, in 2019, we can see the populations that are in most need of connectivity infrastructure and where investments should be made.

In 2020, our own analysis, highlights a very active Africa! With a lot of the action based on the West and East. We are yet to rally the South and North, and this gives us our passion for success.

We see increased trade...

Africa's export has been mainly raw materials (minerals, cocoa, timber etc) which other African countries lacked the capacity to process. However, with the growth of the services sector in most African countries, the old trade paradigm is shifting, coupled with the setting up of new industries to process raw materials to feed local industries across the continent.

Our vision is to enable connected commerce across the continent, one currency at a time on a superior electronic exchange leveraging a digital and secure backend in the Cloud.

We see growth of African economies...

The improved transport infrastructure (roads, railways, regional airlines) literacy levels, connectivity, integrated payment infrastructure and trade across the African has ushered the continent onto a growth path.

We see an African Renaissance...

"I am born of a people who are heroes and heroines (...) Patient because history is on their side, these masses do not despair bacause today the weather is bad, Nor do they turn triumphalist when, tomorrow the sun shines (...) whatever the circumstances they have lived through and because of that experience they are determined to define for themselves who they are and who they should be..." Thabo Mbeki
