Two startups that developed their business models on the continent — MallforAfrica and Zipline — were tapped by international interests. Another startup developed in Africa, Zipline, was tapped by U.S. healthcare provider Novant for drone delivery of critical medical supplies in the fight against COVID-19. Zipline and Novant are touting the arrangement as the first authorized long-range drone logistics delivery flight program in the U.S. The story behind the Novant, Zipline UAV collaboration has a twist: The capabilities for the U.S. operation were developed primarily in Africa. Uber and Bolt have been operating in Africa’s major economies since 2015, where there are also a number of local app-based taxi startups.
