Our story began in July 2018 where the two Ghanaians, Awura Abena Amponsah & Gilbert Blankson-Afful co-founded Sumundi. The experience and grit gathered from their initial retail technology ventures over the previous years hugely contributed to getting Sumundi to this stage.
Data is the future oil, but retailers in Africa are missing out on that. Over 80% of retailers are small to medium scale and do not digitally manage their businesses. As such, they aren’t able to take advantage of the benefits of emerging technologies such as Big Data. Unlike existing providers, we invest into ensuring that retail retailers who need education in order to be ready for digital inclusion aren’t left out.
Today, Sumundi is digitally managing the data points for over 125,000+ products and $10M+ worth of sales belonging to retail businesses across Ghana. We are on a mission to bring convenience and digital inclusion to the neglected retail businesses in Africa through the power of technology.
