We recently caught up with with Andile Masuku from the African Tech Round-up team, alumni of the first JamLab Accelerator programme. The team produce podcasts focusing on technology, digital and innovation news and insights that matter from across the African continent. Since completing the six month accelerator programme in 2017, they have been working around the clock to grow their audiences, and networks in the African tech community, and develop a viable business strategy.

I caught up with Andile after the closing session at the recent Radio Days Africa conference in Johannesburg, South Africa. Take a listen.
