In this episode, I have the pleasure of interviewing Nichole Yembra, founding and managing director of The Chrysalis Company which runs a 15M fund focused on Tech companies in Africa.
We discuss everything from the continent’s most successful mobile money M-Pesa, to why North Africa is the next terrain to conquer. And why a product may succeed in one part of Africa but have an abysmal outcome in a different country.
We also discuss why technology is a great tool and how her portfolio companies are democratizing wealth for millennial Africans. And why companies struggling through the pandemic shouldn’t just strive for survival but instead use the opportunity to re-build a thriving company.
