By 2030, Africa will have the largest global workforce with a population of over 1 billion people, yet access to opportunities is an ever growing problem.
For career builders, there are no jobs in the market or there are significant barriers to accessing jobs.
On the employer side, Africa has one of the largest and fastest growing economies in the world, yet finding a talent good enough to fit into an organization is still a challenge. That’s why Fuzu exists, to bridge the gap between the two worlds.
We recently had a sit down with Nabil Anjarwalla, Country Director Fuzu Kenya, where he shared the story of Fuzu. Nabil shared how technology is an enabler of what they do this is especially through scalability and reach driven by the smartphone penetration that is at 70% in Kenya and expected to reach a similar level across the continent by 2025.
“Through this we are able to reach millions of people by a click of the button,” said Nabil.
Nabil also attributed the success of Fuzu to emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in career progression for career builders. The adoption of these technologies have enabled Fuzu to give real recommendations for career builders.
