RippleNami® Wins Best Blockchain Solution from AppsAfrica® Awards

AppsAfrica Innovation Awards 2019 Honored RippleNami in Cape Town

Nairobi, Kenya…. December 18, 2019 – RippleNami, Inc., a provider of traceability and transparency technology, was named the winner of Best Blockchain Solution during the 5th Annual AppsAfrica Innovation Awards. These prestigious awards continue to showcase the best mobile and tech services launched across the African continent, from both corporates and start-ups, and this year attracted entries from 52 countries across the continent and further afield.  On 11 November 2019, RippleNami joined the winner’s stage alongside thirteen other winners in categories, such as Best IoT Solution Liquid Telecom (Kenya), Changing Africa Award Flutterwave (Nigeria) and Social Impact Award IDEA Digital Education (South Africa).

“This award comes on the heels of RippleNami launching its Traceability and Transparency Initiative™.  Anticipating the increasing demands for verifiable product management from source to end-user, we designed and launched this new platform specifically for recording, searching, tracking, and visualizing a genealogy linkage between assets,” says Jaye Connolly-LaBelle, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

RippleNami is the only company with the capability to provide true end-to-end traceability. We do this by utilizing our blend of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, genetics, data visualization, and mobile phones. RippleNami is the only company offering the capability to provide verifiable end to end traceability, connecting all the parties and creating unprecedented visibility and transparency all along any supply chain— from raw materials to the end user.

Kyalo Muambi, RippleNami’s Head of Africa Business Development, explains, “Africa as a continent continues to suffer from the world’s highest per-capita rate of foodborne illnesses.  According to the World Health Organization, foodborne hazards are responsible for 91 million acute illnesses in Africa every year.  On the other hand, trade is imperative to uplift African economies.  The majority of African countries do not meet the export standards to ensure food safety.  By utilizing RippleNami’s proprietary technology solution in the agriculture sector throughout Africa, we facilitate the adoption of export standards, while providing the ability to verify compliance throughout the entire value chain and are changing the global landscape in unprecedented fashion.”

“This year, we saw entries from 52 countries and are delighted to showcase tech innovators from across the continent for our fifth edition. The AppsAfrica.com Innovation Awards provide an unbiased platform for the smaller guys to compete on a level playing field against bigger corporates, who typically dominate Awards elsewhere, which is why we first set them up in 2015. Congratulations to all the winners we look forward to having them all join us at Africa Tech Summit in Rwanda next year, and a special word of thanks all entrants, our expert judging panel, sponsors and supporting partners across Africa who help each year” shared Andrew Fassnidge founder of AppsAfrica.com.

Sponsored by the Africa Tech Summit Kigali, Tencent, Huawei, and Mobile Monday South Africa (MOMO), the 2019 edition saw over 400 applications assessed and judged by an independent panel of industry experts including media, investors, and leaders from the tech ecosystem. By invitation, RippleNami will be attending Africa Tech Summit in Kigali 2020 to join 400+ tech leaders from across the continent which will feature three tracks – the Money and Blockchain Summit, the Future Summit, and the Africa Start-up Summit and will bring together over 600+ corporates, mobile ventures, start-ups and investors from across the African tech ecosystem.
