Check out www.pukena.ng.
Pukena uses technology to organise and mobilise informal service providers to give a superior and cheaper experience to employers. Pukena aims to be the go to marketplace for blue-collar jobs on-demand ranging from plumbing and electrical work to gardening, painting and car repair.

herd mentality ? Is it because fin-tech is hot ?


#12

The herd is actually supporting ecommerce.
Is Fintech hot?

Look at the Data. Look at the Market demand. Then reach a sane conclusion.


#13

Ecommerce ?
I’m actually part of a committee that analyse startups for investment in Nigeria and Fin-tech is actually #1


#14

So you will agree with me that it’s wrong to insinuate that it’s crowd mentality to pick fintech ahead of others, since according to your account fintech is number one your committee has chosen, unless you guys let the crowd mentality determine your pick.


#15

What I’m saying is that: 90% of startups we receive since January are in the category of fintech
