AppsAfrica Innovation Awards 2018 Honors RippleNami in Cape Town

Nairobi, Kenya…. October 29, 2017 – RippleNami, Inc., a provider of blockchain data visualization technology, is honored to receive its designation as a finalist for the 4th Annual AppsAfrica Innovation Awards. On 12 November 2018, RippleNami will join the winner’s stage alongside four other finalists including Medixus (Kenya), Orange (Democratic Republic of Congo), Flutterwave (Nigeria) and Vanu, Inc. (Rwanda/Zambia).  This prestigious awards ceremony celebrates the best in class for mobile and technology across Africa.

“RippleNami’s blockchain data visualization platform empowers individuals and organizations to generate, collect, analyze and transact data to ultimately establish ‘smart economies.’  This award comes on the heels of RippleNami launching Kenya’s first real-time livestock traceability programme enabling trade and food safety that leverages the mass adoption of mobile phones” says Jaye Connolly-LaBelle, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, “and we are fueling the change in Africa at a rapid pace.”

Joyce Jerotich Yegon, East African Development Director, explains “we continue to aggressively deploy RippleNami’s proprietary livestock technology solution into developing countries and are changing the global landscape in unprecedented fashion.  Launching this programme mitigates legacy challenges like disease control and surveillance and traceability, drug residues in animals and animal products, insufficient health and food safety hygiene standards and systems, among others. RippleNami is changing Africa’s livestock producers lives by capturing essential data on husbandry including feeding, vaccinations and treatment. These empowered producers are now accessing improved markets, insurance services and credit facilities by leveraging their livestock enterprises as the collateral, while controlling livestock movement and husbandry management.  With RippleNami’s end-to-end solution, banks for the first time are now positioned to offer cattle owners micro-lending privileges and sustained financial support. This is a smart economy that’s changing Africa in real-time.”

The Annual Innovations Awards receives submissions from 39 countries showcasing solutions launched across all 54 African markets by start-ups, established ventures, and corporations. Unsurprisingly, a majority of entries come from Nigeria, South Africa, and Kenya, and others from smaller markets including Malawi, Sao Tome & Principe, Mauritania, and Liberia.

“The AppsAfrica Awards established in 2014, celebrates the crème of the crop in mobile and technology across the continent as many of these ventures lack the visibility and recognition their technologies deserve. This year produced a vast array of highly competitive entries from stunning new technologies utilizing AI, bots, and drones to mobile, health and education initiatives scaling across Africa,” shared Andrew Fassnidge founder of AppsAfrica.com.

The awards supported by Uber, JET8¸ Syntonic and Mobile Monday South Africa (MOMO) provide winners with industry recognition, global publicity and networking with 300+ industry peers at the awards ceremony in Cape Town on 12 November, on the eve of AfricaCom.

RippleNami Invited to Help Advance Women in Kenya

Joyce Jerotich Yegon

RippleNami to Address Supply Chain Management for Women Farmers at Nairobi University

Nairobi, Kenya – April 25, 2018 – RippleNami, Inc., a provider of blockchain data visualization platform, announces its East African Development Director, Joyce Jerotich Yegon, will speak at The School of Business and African Women Studies at Nairobi University located on Kabete Campus on 25 April 2018. Hosted by Professor Bitange Ndemo, this event will address members of the Women Entrepreneurs Training and Incubation Program. Yegon is an influential leader who has been instrumental in championing the most advanced digital Livestock Supply Chain Management solution throughout Kenya.  Yegon will address the challenges women farmer’s face and how RippleNami’s technology platform can convert these historic challenges into a sustained profit center and higher standard of living  for their  families.

Historically, these women farmers suffer from a multitude of market and cultural disadvantages that stem from a lack of land size and ownership tenure; authority on crop selections; market pricing indicators; and accessibility to capital resources necessary to fund and scale operations.

Using RippleNami’s technology, small scale women farmers are empowered to forge partnerships, enterprises, cooperatives and/or farmers associations to leverage greater buying power and lease more land or cultivate their individual land parcels more profitably.

These women can be locally trained on state of the art irrigation techniques and farming technologies, hands-on training during the planting, growing and harvest seasons, around fertilizer, pesticide, and herbicide applications, protection decisions, weed identification, marketing of field crops as well as bookkeeping and crop Insurance. All these aspects will assist in increasing the volume of crops while sustaining supply and improving crop field quality. These combined elements enable buyers to provide the critical contracts for women farmers.

By mapping all the women merchants and their buyers (schools, prisons, hospitals, supermarkets, and processors) they are then empowered to strategically sell to the geographically desirable buyers and at a competitive price.

The ultimate advantage that will drive the greatest value for women in Kenya is that by controlling their land, crops and supply chain through RippleNami’s platform, women farmers become part of their country’s economy and control their future.
