TechInAfrica – The impact investment company Miarakap and I&P Acceleration Technologies has partnered with Sayna, Africa’s first Edtech, and crowdsourcing platform.
Two of Sayna’s programs, the online training platform, and the micro-tasking platform will be in the two investors’ support, along with the overall financial, technical, organizational support.
Matina Razafimahefa, co-founder and CEO of Sayna, commented: “As a team, we are very proud of what we have accomplished so far. Our successes and failures have allowed us to truly understand our market so that we can now offer a solution that can truly reinvent access to the job market for junior developers. The best is ahead of us! “
Emmanuel Cotsoyannis, co-founder and CEO of Miarakap, added, “We have been watching Sayna since its inception and have recently encouraged Matina in its strategic pivot towards a 100 percent online product, meeting both the training needs of thousands of potential learners and those of companies looking for efficient and responsible outsourcing solutions. The financing from I&P Acceleration Technologies is a real opportunity and we hope it will allow Miarakap to provide additional capital funding to scale up this project.”
David Munnich, Executive Director of I&P Acceleration and I&P Development said, “The program’s deployment is progressing well, with six companies in the portfolio, and we are proud to support companies with strong growth and impact potential like Sayna. The company’s original approach, which is highly adapted to local conditions and needs, and the exceptional tech and digital skills of the project leaders, have convinced us.”
Sayna plans to enable 8,000 Africans into the digital industry through their training programs and over 3,500 Africans to enroll in the micro-tasking platform by 2024.
