Andy Ayim on Minorities in Tech

This issue I wanted to highlight how Africa is slowly becoming a hub for tech talent. I’ve spoken to founders this year that have everything from growth marketing teams to developers based in Africa. With the rise of remote work, improved connectivity (more affordable data + wifi bundles) and upskilling in tech. I believe we will see more jobs in tech go towards the young working population across Africa in this new decade.
Cool events this week I wish I could attend include Techish Live and MM Talks.
I am also speaking at The Treasure Tress pop up shop and hosting an event on alternative funding for founders (revenue-share etc). See more in the event section below.
