Oh the weather outside is frightful, but it’s not snowing in the south-western tip of Africa. The wind’s howling and four seasons are constantly…
Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey will be travelling through Africa this month.
Dorsey announced in a tweet earlier today that he’d completed the Nigeria leg of his trip after landing in the country last Thursday (7 November). It’s not clear where he’s headed next.
Last month he revealed in a tweet that he would be travelling to Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa throughout November.
He said that during the trip he plans to meet entrepreneurs who include Kudu Ventures co-founder and managing partner Noel Daniel and iCog Labs programme manager Betelhem Dessie.
