Reshaping Africa’s Narrative: Gebeya – Empowering African Tech Talent Ethically!


In the world of storytelling, Africa’s narrative has often been confined to stereotypes of poverty, conflict, and challenges, overshadowing the incredible offerings the continent has to share with the world. However, Africa boasts a diverse range of cultural richness, development, music, fashion, and yes, even exceptional technological prowess. In recent years, Africa’s tech scene has witnessed a surge in innovation and exceptional talent, producing an impressive seven unicorn companies solely in tech.

Despite the remarkable growth in tech talent and capabilities, accessing global job opportunities and showcasing skills remains a challenge for many African tech professionals. The potential to hire and vet talent remotely offers a solution, but most companies still opt to recruit from regions like India, China, and Eastern Europe, leaving African tech talent to struggle with low-paying roles or unemployment.

In a tech-enabled world with the ability to train, source, vet, and recruit talent remotely, African tech professionals should be receiving equal opportunities. Unfortunately, the prevailing narrative connecting technology and tech talent to Asia and Eastern Europe has hindered African talents from receiving due recognition and opportunities, leading to low wages and harsh working conditions.

This is where Gebeya enters the stage! Gebeya, a groundbreaking tech talent marketplace, is revolutionizing Africa’s narrative and reshaping the ethical offshoring landscape.
