The Afridigest Week in Review is a must-read weekly recap for Africa-focused founders, executives, and investors, as well as interested observers. Share it liberally. 😊
Welcome back, friends! The most clicked link from last week was the ‘Consumer Technology Trends 2022' report from Heartcore. And ICYMI: on Saturday, we published a recap of last month’s key developments & trends,'A fantastic February for tech startups in Africa.' With that said, let’s get into Week 9.
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.
