Episode #90 is with Richmond Bassey, who is the CEO and founder of Bamboo, which is an investment platform that gives Africans the tools to build wealth from the ground up through real-time access to global markets.
In countries like Nigeria, Ghana, and South Africa, individuals often witness their hard-earned savings dwindle away due to weakening currencies and soaring inflation rates. In fact, the Naira and Cedi were among the worst-performing currencies globally last year. Bamboo, however, stands as a beacon of hope in these challenging financial times.
Bamboo has raised a total of $18.3 million in investment and is backed by prominent US investors Tiger Global and Greycroft. Bamboo has 633k users, is present in Nigeria and Ghana, and is looking to launch in South Africa and Kenya this year.
