Show Notes

Twelve years ago, Sim Shagaya launched Konga as he bid to build Africa's Amazon. However, he would leave the startup just five years later after investors opted to stop funding the startup despite its impressive growth. 

He has since launched edtechs uLesson and Miva University as he sets his eyes on providing quality education to Africa's teaming youth. In this tell-all interview, he shares stories from his early days building Konga and lessons he learned from the process.
