In line with our commitment to the startup ecosystem in Africa, TechCabal has just wrapped up the second season of My Startup in 60 Seconds, our flagship video series where founders share the unique problems they are solving and why, all in less than a minute.
With My Startup in 60 Seconds, our aim is to cut through the noise and give you, our audience, the chance to appreciate the back stories and the lessons that come with building and leading a successful startup. This season, we featured eight innovative African founders spanning different sectors and countries. Here’s a breakdown of each episode:
In the first episode, we featured Duke Ekezie, co-founder of Kippa Africa. Kippa Africa is a startup that provides a software management tool and a payment acceptance platform for businesses across Africa to improve operations and do record keeping.
The second episode features Adedapo Sobayo. Sobayo is the co-founder and CTO of Moni, a startup that leverages social trust to deliver financial services to small businesses across Africa. So far, they’ve been able to help 37 million SMEs gain access to credit.
For the third episode, we featured Kingsley Oti of Send, a digital freight forwarder and operating system for the supply chain. According to Kingsley, Send is a one-stop shop for customers to manage their shipments end to end, helping them evade the complexities and uncertainty of shipping. This solution was borne out of a lack of transparency in the shipping industry.
In the fourth episode
In episode five, Damilola Olotu, co-founder of SendChamp. SendChamp is a startup solving user retention problems for businesses by providing a multichannel communication platform to engage and sustain their customers.
For the sixth episode, we featured Olamide Adebiyi, who’s the founder of Tracc Systems, an operating system for logistics and supply chain management. According to Adebiyi, the logistics and supply chain market is fragmented and heavily manually driven, and Tracc is helping to solve this problem by providing logistics planning, visibility and analytics, among other features.
The seventh episode featured Tendai Mugovi, founder of Cashlinq, a digital banking wallet software addressing financial exclusion in Zimbabwe.
The eighth episode featured Kgololo Lekoma, co-founder of Credipple. Credipple is a talent marketplace connecting business owners to creative and digital professionals for remote work.
We hope you learn something from the journey of these incredible founders, and that they inspire you as much as they have inspired us at TechCabal.
