The business of tech continues to be redefined by innovators in a wide array of professional fields. These women, though not ‘techies’, have discovered a way to use their unique expertise to create value for customers through technology.


In Kenya, mobile money is almost synonymous with Safaricom’s M-Pesa. With more than 110,000 M-Pesa agents in the country, the telecom has about 40 times the number of bank ATMs. No other mobile money service has been able to successfully challenge Safaricom’s dominance, but not from a lack of trying.

Until recently, potential investors had to go to asset management companies, brokerage firms, private portfolio managers or investment firms to complete the very formal process to invest. But a new crop of mobile and web apps are leveraging tech to make investing more accessible through digital ‘retail’ investment platforms–drawing in beginner investors along the way.
