Today I want to share excerpts (edited for this page) from a blog article shared here a few days ago by someone in our #SeniorClass who looked at our new Sasai venture as an entrepreneur, not a consumer. Take a look at the work by this young writer who has been following this page for some time, like many of you, then let me know what you think… as an entrepreneur! I’ll be sharing a few new exciting developments here later this week, but today, let’s talk…
“An African Technological Milestone” by Progress Ibrahim (I will share the link below)
“The United Nations estimated the current world population to be 7.7bn people. This is forecast to be 8bn and 10bn people living on this planet in 2023 and 2055 respectively. According to Un.org this population is shared among the continents of the world: 61% of the population of the world lives in Asia, 17% in Africa, 8% in Latin America and the Caribbean, 10% in Europe and 5% in North America and Oceania.
What are the economic values of these metrics? The GDP of every continent depends on some factors: two among them are the population size and the technological level. So, the economy of Asia and Africa have good prospects in population-wise. What about the prospect of these two continents technology-wise? China and the Asian Tigers are leading the continent of Asia in terms of technological advancements. We have innovations such as 5G, AI, social media platforms such as WeChat, Alipay and Alibaba tech platforms evolving from China and Asia.
In the continent of Africa we have achieved little in the above areas but we are developing our own inventions and platforms. One of the outstanding technological breakthroughs in Africa recently is Sasai.
__Sasai’s Core Components
As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella rightly put it: “Longevity in business lies in the ability of the business to reinvent itself or invent the future”. As it applies to the corporate world or business so it is to every economy because the growth of every economy and the strength of their currencies are hinged on their innovated and invented values.
Sasai is an African technology that combines the business models of traditional and modern businesses to form an outstanding business. It is a technology that is developed to operate with the future technological revolutions of AI and 5G.
