    IT’S UNBELIEVABLE HOW MUCH WE USE OUR PHONES.

    Lots more crazy info here.

  3. We’re thrilled to announce a big milestone for Team Kopo Kopo. A few weeks ago, we processed our 1,000,000th payment via Lipa na M-PESA.

    Our first live Lipa na M-PESA payment was for six bottles of Coca-Cola and a cup of tea on March 28th, 2012. Since that day, we’ve experienced twenty-seven consecutive months of growth and now service roughly 15,000 SMEs throughout Kenya.

    We’re on a mission to change the way SMEs manage their businesses in emerging markets. 1,000,000 payments is a good start, but it’s just the beginning.

  7. The story must explain at a fundamental level why you exist. Why does the world need your company? Why do we need to be doing what we’re doing and why is it important?

  9. "Davis notes that the graph ‘reveals an enormous amount of variation in gasoline prices. Gasoline prices average $5.26 per gallon, but range from $.09 per gallon in Venezuela to above $9.00 in Turkey and Norway.’

What’s clear is that the prices American consumers pay for gasoline fall roughly in the middle of what many others around the world pay, and quite a bit less than the global average.”
