CEO and Co-founder of Gebeya, a Pan-African Gig Economy platform, Amadou, a true pan-Africanist, lived in several African countries. He moved back to Africa from the US and settled in Ethiopia 6 years ago to build a Pan-African tech company that could compete globally. A driven entrepreneur with a robust background in IT and extensive experience traveling and networking throughout Africa, Amadou co-founded CODERS4AFRICA to build the continent’s largest software outsourcing company. Now at Gebeya, his 3 passions technology, Africa, and talent, fuel his drive to expand Africa’s gig economy, leveraging the continent’s richest and most indispensable resource: its human capital.
GEBEYA INC is solving one of Africa’s biggest challenges: employment. Our tech-driven marketplace connects remote African tech talents with employers globally. Africa’s working-age population suggests an unprecedented increase in youth unemployment over the next decade. The continent needs to generate 12 million new jobs every year to keep unemployment at bay. Gebeya gets 15% recurring commission for each matched talent.
