Is Africa's tech industry growing significantly? Will there be more opportunities there in the next few years?

I’d argue yes. There has continued to be more VC opportunities and PM opportunities as conpanies continue to establish global HQs in Nairobi, Joburg, Accra and Lagos. I’m not as familiar with the Northern opportunities. I do think it helps to be at an larger tech company then transfer to their office based on the continent.


I agree with this. I think we will see more expansions into Africa in the next five years.

I’m in the interview process now and communication has not necessarily been that great with it being seemingly rushed then with gaps and then being passed to other recruiters who asked me the same question and act like I should be further along in the process then having to get back to me because they need to talk to somebody else.
