The Afridigest Week in Review is a must-read weekly recap for Africa-focused founders, executives, and investors, as well as interested observers. Share it liberally. 😊
Welcome back, friends! The most clicked link from last week was the a16z newsletter that highlighted the emergence of a B2B e-commerce + fintech playbook across emerging markets. And in case you missed it, I published a piece on trends & developments across the ecosystem in Jan 2022. Anyhow, let’s get into Week 5.
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.
