The Sound of Accra Podcast

In 2019, Adrian Daniels had a brainwave to launch a podcast platform to showcase Ghanaian excellence to the world. The internet is already crowded with content from Ghana: YouTube, Social Media pages, etc. However, after hosting 2x Networking Events during Christmas 2018 & 2019 in Accra for the Global African Diaspora, Adrian noticed a lack and desire for networking, whilst meeting many creatives and entrepreneurs from around the globe. In January 2020, The Sound of Accra Podcast was born. Powerful interviews with Top Founders, Entrepreneurs and Creatives from Ghanaian heritage or interest, leaving listeners with meaningful takeaways for life, business and career. New episodes weekly.

In this clip, we delve deep into an insightful discussion about Ghana's readiness for Web3, Blockchain, and Cryptocurrency.Listen to the full conversation here: https://open.spotify.com/episode/7u3xUZywIc41H68yQSGEhH Our dialogue springs from an interview with Del Titus, a strong evangelist in Ghana's Web3 space. Discover how global tech giants like Google and Twitter have set up headquarters in Accra, with other tech companies following suit and establishing themselves in Ghana.
We explore why Africa, and Ghana specifically, are considered ready for these emerging technologies. Learn how the fresh African market and up-and-coming Ghanaian startups are helping the region delve into this industry and why it is essential. With less than 1% of the world invested in cryptocurrency, we are still in the early stages, and Africa's potential is incredible.
Our guest Carlita Cash discusses their recent trip to Ghana and their observations about the growing interest, both in business and tourism. Drawing parallels to Dubai, currently a crypto hub, we identify how Ghana could also reach these heights. Hear about Ghanaians discovering alternative income sources during the 2020-2021 lockdown period through buying, selling, and trading crypto.
We also touch on the digitalization trends in Ghana, across government entities, banks, and mobile money transfer platforms, indicating a likely future transition into crypto. Learn how the increasing access to the internet and smartphones is boosting these developments and making big waves in the crypto world.Follow Carlita Cash on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cashcarlita

Vodafone has finalised the sale of its majority shares to Telecel Group (70%), with the Ghanaian Government holding 30% of the shares. This week, they have announced the rebranding of Vodafone Ghana to Telecel, where they had the rights to the Vodafone Ghana name up to February 2024. 
Margherita Della Valle, Chief Executive of Vodafone, said:
“The sale of Vodafone Ghana to Telecel Group is a further step in simplifying Vodafone’s African portfolio. Since entering the market in 2008, Vodafone has helped to develop Ghana’s critical network infrastructure supporting customers, businesses and communities.”The Vodacom Group (The subsidiary that manages Vodafone's African Portfolio), also takes a step back from other countries including Egypt and Kenya. 
Vodafone Ghana were not able to compete effectively with MTN, which has the largest marketshare of telecommunications in Ghana and arguably across Africa. MTN own over two-thirds of the market share (66%) in Ghana, whilst Vodafone owned less than one-third (17%). 
Vodafone made a significant contribution to the African market by launching M-Pesa in 2007, Africa's most successful mobile money service, providing access to financial services for millions of people

In the second edition of Fintech Fridays, we analyse some of the biggest fundraising deals of the year 2023 completed by African Startups that also have a presence in Ghana, including Moove Africa. In addition, we look at the amount of funding that has taken place across the continent of Africa for startups since 2019. Welcome to Fintech Fridays, a brand new podcast segment by The Sound of Accra Podcast, exploring current financial trends and technology impacting the nation of Ghana, whilst analysing what that means for you and me, in micro episodes. 
Summary in This Week’s episode
Moove Africa, Lem-Fi and M-Kopa are some of the biggest fundraising deals of the year that have taken place in Africa, who have each raised at least tens of millions of dollars and have a presence across many African countries.
Billions of dollars have been raised by countries dominating the startup world in Africa, including Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa and Egypt.
Ghana isn't a startup leader but has done over 42+ startup deals each raising at least one million dollars.
 A key startup deal that has taken place was completed by Wave (formerly Sendwave) which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars
