Back on the show for the first time since contributing his fair share of involuntary hot takes on Episode 109 entitled "Investor Bias Debate 2.0 + Should Africa Embrace Uberisation?" Tapsnapp Founder, Vije Vijendrenath, assumes co-hosting duties in Musa Kalenga's absence. I chat with him about the workarounds he's deployed to secure funding for two startups that he previously struggled to get investors to take seriously-- namely, Tapsnapp and YouBabyandI.
Then, joining Vije and me on the show for a deep dive into South Africa's mobility scene is Obakeng Morapeli Matlhoko, the Founder of AftaRobot-- South Africa's ambitious "Uber for minibus taxis". Obakeng shares trench insights into his company’s audacious attempt usher in a new paradigm for the country’s notoriously fragmented minibus taxi industry.
