About Me

A serial entrepreneur in Africa focused on large scale technology driven innovations. After an experience in the banking and consulting industry, I have developed Mobile Financial Services within Telecommunications Operators for 5 years in Africa, as greenfield in Chad for Tigo, and as a more mature business in Uganda for Airtel.

I have now co founded Optimetriks, which develops an end-to-end solution to collect information at the outlet levels, helping FMCG companies and institutions monitor their distribution in Africa. Our proprietary product suite relies on three pillars : a crowdsourcing data collection mobile application, data screening algorithms, and web business intelligence dahsboards.

We leverage a community of hundreds of contributors who do retails audits and census, in an agile way, as a service, with results delivered through a user friendly analytical web interface, to ensure full operational impact.
