The Afridigest Week in Review is a must-read weekly recap for Africa-focused founders, executives, and investors, as well as interested observers.
Welcome back, friends! The most clicked link from last week was this overview of the COO role from Openview. As expected, Week 50 was a slow week for deals as the year comes to a close. A few deals should trickle out in Week 51 before the end of the year so expect a Week in Review next week as well. But until then, Merry Christmas, friends 🎅🎄🎁
If you’re new, welcome 🙌 — you’ll receive a weekly digest like this one every Monday and, generally (but not always), an original essay/article on Saturdays. For past essays and digests, visit the archive.
