Talented Africa

Industry: Business development, Economic empowerment, Social Entrepreneurship
Description: Small-to-Medium Business Financial Mentoring Platform

Insight

Founded by Paul Green in 2009, Talented Africa aims to help talented Africans identify and capture economic opportunity. His vision included a web resource which allowed small business owners to record and chart their business progress – notably several key financial indicators. In turn, business owners receive advice, direction and mentorship from business veterans. Armed with a comprehensive storyboard, Paul approached White Wall Web to help with construction.

Process

After a brave but slightly cautious start, the client soon realised the inherent benefit of an Agile development relationship and a series of short, transparent development bursts. Using Ruby on Rails, Scrum and PivotalTracker, the team delivered great milestone results – securing further funding for additional features and development.

White Wall Web created a custom built system for Talented Africa on specification. Trial clients are using the system from 2011.

Technology

The solution was built using Ruby on Rails, making extensive use of JavaScript/AJAX for heavy client-side functionality. MySQL was used for the database, it’s served using Nginx and the project features significant test coverage. The Intellectual Property is owned by Talented Africa.
