Mobile Startup Camp alumni forge networks across Africa

In their ongoing efforts to develop the products they showcased at our Mobile Startup Camp last November, three African women entrepreneurs headed to Nairobi to expand their roster of contacts at Mobile East Africa 2014.

The entrepreneurs include Kate Kiguru, head of security firm Ukall, as well as ShopSoko’s Kate Mahugu and Stella Zimotho of mPayer.

Kiguru, whose app Akida helps companies and individual manage security personnel, was most excited at the opportunity to show her app to other African entrepreneurs and scout for partnerships.

In the past, Kiguru has relied on ecosystem-nurturing events, such as Mobile Startup Camp, to help her constantly refine her app.

“As an entrepreneur, my experience from attending such events has helped me grow my network of both the techies and potential clients for our solutions,” she said. “Their feedback has been instrumental in helping to refine our products for the market.”

To keep up with these ventures and for news on the mobile ecosystem in Africa, follow Kiguru, Mahugu, and Zimotho on Twitter.
