#369 – Africa Startup Series – Maya Horgan Famodu, Ingressive Capital - Africa Holds The Fastest Growing Consumer Class, Fastest Growing Population & Fastest Growing Middle Class in The World

36 minutes

In episode 369, we welcome our guest, Maya Horgan Famodu, founder of Ingressive Capital, a VC fund focused on early stage African tech, and believed to be the youngest person to launch a tech fund in Sub-Saharan Africa.

 

In today’s episode, we start with Maya’s journey to the African tech scene.   She lays out the factors behind the recent explosion in funding that the continent has recently seen - strong demographics, high growth, and rapid tech adoption.  Then we get into some companies she’s invested in, specifically a lot of “X for Africa,” the African equivalent of companies like Stripe, Robinhood, Flexport, and Plaid. And we even touch on 54gene, which we highlighted in episode 345.  

 

As we wind down, we hear what lies ahead for Maya now that she just finished raising her second fund of $50 million.
