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! Happy 4th of July to readers in the US. ✨ The most clicked link last week was '10 lessons I learned while building Africa's super app.'
Remember, I'm trialing a new section in the newsletter where I respond to reader questions which I’ll kick off next week. You can participate by sending questions in reply to this email or by clicking here: email, Twitter DM, Whatsapp. (Idea stolen, with thanks, from: Ask Levy.)
If you’re new, welcome 🙌🏽 — you’ll receive a weekly digest like this on Mondays usually and, generally (but not always), an original essay/article on Saturdays. For past essays and digests, visit the archive.
💥 Thanks in advance for sharing this newsletter with your Twitter followers, LinkedIn colleagues, Slack groups, email friends, etc. 🙏🏽
