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! Thanks for your patience with this Week in Review — I unplugged a bit for a few reasons last week, but the next WiR (Week 32's) should arrive on Monday as usual (and what a week it was). In any case, the most clicked link last week was Tanay Jaipuria’s 'Time-to-Utility and Jobs to be Done.'
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. 🙏🏽
