Afridigest Week in Review: Investors in Africa should be more transparent
Afridigest is your intelligent guide to Africa’s tech ecosystem. This Afridigest Week in Review helps you stay in the know about what happened in Africa Tech last week.
📌 ICYMI, I published an old conversation with Moniepoint's CEO Tosin Eniolorunda as a podcast (+Youtube video) last Wednesday. I’ll also (finally) publish an ancient conversation with Bloc’s CEO Edmund Olotu this Wednesday if all goes well. And I should talk to Ham from Chipper Cash and Segun from Anchor in the near future, so let me know if you have any questions I should ask them.
In other news, 19(!) debt & equity deals were announced this week so this is a rather long email. And the Africa Climate Summit held in Nairobi so, perhaps not surprisingly, there were a ton of climate tech-related investor announcements.
If you’re new here: welcome — this Week in Review is sent on Mondays, the Fintech Review goes out on Sundays, and additional content goes out on (some but not all) Wednesdays/Saturdays. For past essays and digests, visit the archive & Afridigest.com.
And with that said, let’s get into it.
