One stop shop for updates on PE and VC

I've tried a number of apps with similar purpose but this is by far the best because it is a one stop shop for all the latest news in venture capital and private equity across Africa. Highly recommended.

Great app

Great app and easy to use! My go to news source for Africa PE news! Functionality to share articles would be a major bonus. Currently when I try share an article the receiver only gets a link to download the app even if he / she already has the app installed!
