Sorry: No Article this Week
This week I was busy moving countries and I severely underestimated how complicated it is to move a dog from one country to another plus the general hustle of moving after spending many years in one country. I’ve learned that I may be a hoarder! I won’t be able to share an article this week. Sincerest apologies to my regular readers, regular service resumes next week.
Nonetheless, last weekend I took part in an amazing discussion on what must be the best podcast on African Business and Tech; Afrobility. Olumide and Bankole have been doing an amazing job with the podcast. I started listening to Afrobility over a year ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. It has a casual yet deeply analytical approach to discussing business and technology in Africa. Imagine having a beer with your two smartest friends and listening to them dissecting different companies in Africa.
It thus felt like Frontier Fintech was coming full circle as I was invited to participate in a creator roundtable to discuss the African tech scene. The discussion centred around 2021’s biggest moments in African tech as well as what we would want to see more of in 2022. We also discussed our plans and shared some personal stories.
The show also included Justin Norman of The Flip Africa. The Flip is an editorial style podcast and newsletter that also discusses African tech. Justin has done a wonderful job over the last two years and has grown The Flip to one of the premier media entities in African tech. What I love about The Flip is its ability to narrate the promise of African tech whilst deeply probing some of the bottlenecks. Justin has an uncanny ability to be super optimistic whilst asking the right questions. As an aside, Justin is one of the people I reached out to whilst starting Frontier Fintech and his advice was;
Don't sacrifice quality for volume. Change your format or publishing cadence if you have to.
Have it really clear in your mind why you're doing this
This was back in March when Frontier Fintech was barely a month old. Again, coming full circle.
Kindly have a listen and subscribe to both Afrobility and the Flip. Normal service resumes next week.
