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 last week was the Coatue investor presentation (PDF).
Also, I bit the bullet and launched a newsletter on LinkedIn — it’s not at all focused on the African startup ecosystem so YMMV, but if you’re interested in quick, actionable ideas for becoming a better business leader, it’s worth a look. The first piece is here, and the next piece should come later this week.
If you’re new, welcome 🙌🏽 — you’ll receive a weekly digest like this on Mondays usually and, sometimes (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. 🙏🏽
