In the next six months the Nigerian healthcare sector, will be disrupted by Konga as part of its diversification plans, says Chief Leo Stan-Ekeh, Zinox Group Chairman.
At the Africa Fintech Foundry (AFF) Disrupt Conference 2019 event held on Thursday in Lagos, Chief Ekeh made the claims known
Since the take over of Konga by Yudala (one of the subsidiaries under Zinox Group)the e-commerce platform has moved on to introduce a number of programmes to endear itself to user such as Konga Travel., according to the renowned entrepreneur
Under the theme: ‘Digital Gold Rush; Building a Sustainable Tech Economy’, the chief disrupter Mr Eke declared that “ Konga is going to disrupt the Nigerian health sector in the next six months”.
He however stressed the Group’s unhindered effort in the market by reminding everyone how Konga entered the travel sector and is indeed reinventing itself. Though, the group chairman of Zinox did not give further details on how he hope to achieve this.
“There is a lot difference between an African entrepreneur with American or European entrepreneur”. According to him , “one needs to have and apply common sense before u can succeed here because Africa lacks the infrastructure to help startups or even the new companies. As a matter of fact you need 40% common sense, 20% spirituality and 40% knowledge of the industry you are delving into.” A statement by Chief Leo Stan-Ekeh while sharing his experience as a serial entrepreneur.
He also believes that technological disruption in Nigeria has not started yet, “The government process is still Old at the analogue level and as such infrastructure challenge is also another issue.”
“In technology, it’s either you’re right or you’re wrong”
The greatest wealth is your own money. Banks are not charity companies ,as he further urged the budding entrepreneurs.
The event which was convened by Africa Foundry and sponsored by Access Bank.
