“In Cameroon, in the last year, we’ve had a start-up raise 1.3 million dollars through venture funding, we’ve had another raise 240 thousand dollars through crowdfunding, and just three start-ups have generated 150 jobs. Those are real jobs and that’s real impact….we always talk about the Africa of tomorrow, but these tech entrepreneurs are working with the Africa of today, and we’re building jobs and creating jobs today.”
