This afternoon, I had a really interesting meeting with Nick Hughes, from Signal Point, Founder of M-Pesa. His organisation is raising a venture fund to scale mobile businesses in emerging markets. He is incubating projects (funded by grants), then scoping and conducting iterative testing before Signal Point funds the commercial launch. Those interested in testing and scaling up M4D projects should get in touch. Interesting projects which Signal Point are currently working on include Jipange Kusave, Kopa solar and Namaste Doctor.
Is anyone working on a project which could be scaled and commercialised in the field of M4D?
