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! Let’s get into it:
• Since Week 36, I published the first edition of the new Thought Circle format. Read it here: “Reasons B2C e-commerce hasn't yet scaled in African markets.” So far, folks seem almost as excited about it as I am, but that may be self-selection bias. You can help by giving your quick feedback on the Thought Circle format🤗 If you’re new, welcome 🙌 — you’ll receive 2 weekly Afridigest emails: the weekly digest (every Monday, generally around 12 noon-ish Lagos time) and either an original essay or the new Thought Circle format (on Saturdays at roughly 7pm-ish Lagos time). For past essays and digests, visit the archive.
