Congratulations to Andela. Total funding almost 80 million dollars.
something interest me in the way TC wrote the article
“Andela pays its employees a minimal salary for the first six months after they join but gives them each a laptop, provides subsidized housing, and offers two meals per-day”
it seems Andela is doing Africans a very big favor of saving the Africans,something similar to charity,they(African developers) living under 1 dollars a day couldnt learn anything before Andela, then Andela came and save them,gave them a laptop,house and meal two times a day but funny enough Andela doesnt give anybody subsidies housing but help them in search of accommodation.
:After the six months, once developers are promoted and begin client work, Andela says it pays a salary that is competitive within their local tech ecosystem. That goes up to around $2,500/pm in Lagos and around $3,000/pm in Nairobi."
But if what TC wrote is true about our local entrepreneurs my question is
why are our local entrepreneurs scared? is it based on jealousy or are they scared that Andela is taking all the shine.
