The Africa CEO forum is a high profile annual event for African Business leaders where awards are presented to deserving organisations operating across the continent. This year, the third edition of the African CEO forum took place on the 16th and 17th of March, 2015 in Geneva, a city chosen for its cosmopolitan, multilingual environment and its flourishing financial center.
The award for the ‘International Corporation of the Year’ is won by an international corporation that has seen the strongest growth in its African operations in the recent period. Africa Internet Group (AIG), less than 3 years from inception, was one of the nominees in this category that included Coca-Cola, AXA, Rio Tinto and Danone, who took home the award.
African Internet Group is the parent group of nine successful and fast-growing companies operating in more than 25 African countries. Each company is focused on introducing and accelerating the shift to online within Africa – empowering its people as well as boosting the evolution of an African online culture. AIG companies have rapidly become leaders in their respective industries, pioneering the African internet based growth story. The AIG ventures include Jumia, Kaymu, Hellofood, Lamudi, Carmudi, Zando, Jovago, Lendico and Easy Taxi.
“We are very proud that AIG was nominated as the International Corporation of the Year. This is an amazing achievement standing shoulder to shoulder with the biggest brands in the world. We will continue to focus on excellent Customer experience and seamless logistics to make our business better while we continue to make history,” said Sacha Poignonnec, Co-CEO AIG.
