Slidedeck from my presentation at ForumOxford: Mobile Apps and Technologies Conference 2013. This slideshow presentation is an in-depth analysis of African mobile market penetration in each country. Included are some examples of innovative local entrepreneurs, creating new opportunities with mobile across the continent. As with all my presentations, you will never catch the real context of my talk just based on the slides if you haven't heard the talk. Feel free to ask if any doubts.

  • Nice read. Having setup a mobile venture across the region just over 3 years back i can say its been personally an incredible journey to date. I agree that Kenya is really very progressive (mpesa the obvious example) but Nigeria where we focus very intensively with operators such as Etisalat is skyrocketing. Nice read, and a good overview for those perhaps looking to get involved in the African mobile ecosystem.
