One area of the world that does not get nearly enough business and finance attention is Africa. With many nations and millions of people, it's an area with tremendous untapped potential, particularly in the worlds of payments and fintech.

Joining us on the show to explore this is someone who is very familiar with the business side of Africa, <strong>Marek Zmyslowski</strong>. Marek is a Polish-born entrepreneur and executive, focused on online businesses in Frontier and Emerging Markets.

He co-founded Jumia Travel – Africa’s Biggest Hotel Booking Portal listed on NYSE as part of Jumia Group, and – a Travel Technology Company. In 2014, he was chosen as one of the Ten Most Important People in Tech by IT News Africa Magazine.

He’s recently published a book entitled Chasing Black Unicorns: How building the Amazon of Africa put me on Interpol’s Most Wanted list, a fascinating tell-all about his triumphs and challenges in business abroad.
