What Tech Innovation Really Looks Like in Emerging Markets

Listen on

Episode notes

This episode is about tech innovation in emerging markets beyond the big headlines!

I invited Max Cuvellier, Head of Mobile for Delopment at GSMA and co-founder of Africa: The Big Deal. We chose 3 tech startups that are solving real life problems with innovative solutions in sectors that don't get the big headlines like fintech companies do.

1. Twiga Foods (Kenya): simplifying the supply chain between fresh food producers, FMCG manufacturers and retailers through a B2B e-commerce platform.

2. Coliba (Ivory Coast): a web, mobile and SMS platform that connects households and businesses with plastic waste pickers.

3. eFishery (Indonesia): provides smart feeding device and software for fish and shrimp farmers.
