AHUB: Scaling Start-Ups

Scale start-ups to scale economic impact: entrepreneurship as an engine for growth in Africa

Hot startup of the month: Nigeria's Gradely

According to PwC, artificial intelligence (AI) will add $15.7 trillion to the global GDP by 2030: $6.6 trillion from increased productivity and $9.1 trillion from consumption effects. Africa too will benefit from this economic impact, but it is perhaps socially that the continent stands to gain most from the advancements in the space.  In the vanguard on the education side is Nigeria's Gradely, an adaptive learning app that recommends video lessons, practice and on-demand tutors to help students master challenging subject areas.
