After three highly inspiring pitches of award-winning business models in Africa and one round of intense live voting during the Doing Business in Africa award ceremony, the attendees of the NABC’s Ambassadors’ Dinner 2022 had chosen Tunga as the winner of the Doing Business in Africa Award of 2022!
Tunga was founded in 2015 and works to date with more than 1,000 African software developers. “Our business model is focused on getting those tech talents in Africa to work for Western companies,” affirms Ernesto Spruyt, Founder and CEO of Tunga, shortly after his winning pitch. “So far, 250 clients have put African tech talent to work through us,” said Spruyt, who saw his company’s revenue double every year – except for 2020.
“We definitely don’t want to create a brain drain. That is why the focus is on ensuring that talent stays in Africa. Some of our employees also later start other companies or grow into management positions,” Spruyt said.
