AppsAfrica® Awards Recognizes RippleNami® for Changing Africa

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.
