As seen in the tweet above, it is obvious that Jack has not decided to visit the Africa region mainly for fun, but rather to take a look into the entrepreneur space across various countries in Africa. Hence, his stay will not only be about visitations but also a productive one, especially for entrepreneurs in the respective countries.
In the image above (taken in Ethiopia), Jack is seen posing with Ethiopian entrepreneurs including Noel Daniel of venture capital firm, Kudu Ventures, and Getnet Aseffa, and Betelhem Dessie, from artificial intelligence research and development company, iCog Labs.
While he is now in Nigeria, it is certain that a lot of entrepreneurs will be hoping to meet jack. Of course, there may not be so much chance for jack to visit everyone, however, he will most likely be meeting with some of the popular Nigerian entrepreneurs in the days to come.
On that note, a reliable source revealed that Jack intends to introduce a new product- Square– to entrepreneurs and the African market. Square is best known for its disruptive card payment technology but in recent times, the company seems to be betting big on cryptocurrencies– bitcoin in particular.
While all of this is still speculations, we will make sure to keep you updated on a new development with respect to Jack’s visitation to Nigeria.
