Description: Small-to-Medium Business Financial Mentoring Platform
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.
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.
