TechCabal Conference Call

For those of you who have been living under a pile of rocks, the Nigerian tech ecosystem has been awash with bar talk about the (real size of the) ecommerce space in these parts.

The recently released Kinnevik Q2 2016 earnings report spurred the speculation by revealing that Konga has 184,000 “active customers” and is valued by Kinnevik at $34 million, Rocket has lost 36% of its value since 2015, amongst other things.

In the same vein, we put together a conference call yesterday at noon with a few finance/e-commerce experts like Nairametric’s Ugodre Obi-Chukwu, Interswitch’s Ope Adeoye, Eloho Omame, Yvonne Johnson and Supermart’s Raphael Afaedor. It was fucking great. Learnt a lot, too. You can catch a recap here. Thank me later.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
