Driving consumer engagement in Africa
Driving consumer engagement in Africa

The figures are well known and the sentiment even more so - Africa is enjoying significant growth of the middle class; GDP growth exceeds population growth, so access to disposable income is on the rise and this is expected to grow even further as we edge towards a working-age population of close to 1.3 billion people by 2050.

How do we help those with the virus get response to the rest of the country, place ways of preventing it from spreading, and how do we take action to eradicate this threat? Mobile marketing could be the key.

What the African data gap means for business
What the African data gap means for business

With the buzz on President Obama's Power Africa initiative, the NASA composite map showing the world's haves and have-nots of electricity has become an iconic image. The US is brightly lit, as is Europe and parts of Asia. India, Indonesia, and Brazil, sparkle in the nighttime map. And then there is Africa, nearly dark but for a smattering of lights around South Africa, Lagos, and the Mediterranean shores.
