In line with its vision to support and invest in innovative ideas and technologies startups in Africa capable of providing solution to the problems confronting humanity, Adanian Labs, a pan African venture facilitating tech knowledge across the 54 nations, has expressed its willingness to support some selected Nigerian tech start-ups.
The three Nigerian startups, Afya Rekod, Betalife and Strich, were presented to some media houses recently to attract better publicity for their contents.
While speaking during the media tour, the Community Lab Manager, Alexander Chiejina, stressed the need for humanity to embrace technology, noting that its presence has introduced more conveniences to standard of living.
He said one of the areas of focus of the tech company was development of youth entrepreneurship and empowerment for upcoming tech startups in a bid to solving challenges on the continent.
With technology becoming a major disruptor in the world, Chiejina explained that there was need for them to invest and provide a platform where African tech startups could thrive and access all key resources that allow for them to launch and grow sustainably.
He explained that the three tech startups are committed to offering solutions to healthcare services, improper financial records and Information management systems.
One of the young entrepreneurs, Mubarak Ayaniyi, who built a healthcare product, Betalife, clarified that the software application is aimed at solving the problem of lack of access to blood donation during emergency.
To achieve this, he stated that he was partnering with hospitals and blood banks to boost service delivery in the country’s healthcare sector.
Founder of Strich, Peter Ayeni, said his initiative was to assist SME in managing their businesses better. Also, developer of the third startup, Afya Rekod, John Kamara, explained that the app was driven by blockchain, programmed to ensure safety of health and medical information, as well as sustaining interactions between doctors and patients.
“What we do is to try and manage people’s data in such a way that if you travel abroad, it will be easy for the doctor (s) over there to know exactly the health record of the patient,” Kamara added.
