A Cup of Chai with Ham Serunjogi

A while ago, we created a small group in Whats App to host entrepreneurs and investors who have a passion for Africa in order to discuss and address common issues, share ideas and spur each other on. Occasionally, we try to invite external speakers to come to speak to the group.

Last week, we hosted Ham Serunjogi, the Co-founder of Chipper Cash, an intra-Africa money transfer service.  Ham is from Uganda and went to school at Aga Khan, Mombasa, Kenya (I am proudly Kenyan 😉). Late last year, Chipper Cash raised a $30 million Series B funding round led by Ribbit Capital with participation from Bezos Expeditions (the personal VC fund of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos).

Here is the audio recording of parts of the event where we cover the issues surrounding payments in Africa and how Chipper Cash is going about to solve these issues.

Also available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

We would appreciate your feedback on this.

Michael Mauboussin Resources

He is a prolific writer, author, and thinker who works as Head of Consilient Research at Counterpoint Global and has been in the investment business for 30+ years now.

I decided to collect most of the writings and other content he has made or been involved in.  This is a resource page for this content. I will be updating this list often. Feedback welcome.
