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! This week sees multiple Francophone Africa-focused deals & it’s the first time (at least in a while) with multiple deals in the region in back-to-back weeks. Ça devient intéressant… In other news, don’t hesitate to reach out if you have something to share in the new Community Corner section here & thanks to those that have done so.
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.
