This episode is all about the power of data in emerging markets.
I interviewed Joseph Rutakangwa, co-founder of Rwazi, a company using on-ground data from markets across sub-Saharan Africa. Joseph told me why this is so important for emerging markets economic development in the private sector and also in the public sector. So he came up with the idea of starting Rwazi using gig workers – what he calls “mappers” – and they provide the most accurate and localized data for companies and NGOs.
