Tech firm gets Sh10.13b funding from Mark Zuckerberg foundation
The company building Africa’s top software developers for outsourcing globally, has announced the completion of a $100M Series D funding led by former US Vice President Al Gore’s firm Generation Investment Management with participation from existing investors including Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, GV, Spark Capital, and CRE Venture Capital.
Further, it says with the funding, Andela will upgrade its technology platform to enable it identify, develop and match talent at scale.
“By doing so, Andela will provide its customers with the data they need to understand developer performance and better manage distributed teams,” it adds.
The company will also expand its presence across Africa to meet the global demand for high-quality engineering talent.
“It’s increasingly clear that the future of work will be distributed, in part due to the severe shortage of engineering talent,” says Jeremy Johnson, co-founder and CEO of Andela.
