Who will be the next big African tech startup?

“This April, the elusive and only occurrence of the rare African unicorn, Jumia, has been sighted in Wall Street for its IPO. The success story of Jumia has inspired a lot more to seek for their own unicorns by investing in the African continent’ startup scene. So much so, that in 2018 a little more than a billion dollars had been invested in Startups around Africa.”

The growth of the amount invested in African tech startups by Chinese and European investors is, to say the least, phenomenal, and yet more investment is still needed. Who will be the next big tech startup? Who is best positioned for investment capital? Perhaps, people who have eyes and ears in the tech industry in Africa can connect with investors in America. Is there such a channel and how accessible is it? Thoughts?
