Last month, we signed the paperwork to sell Beyonic to MFS Africa. An eight-year journey ends this phase of the company and I can’t help but feel victorious. Building things is hard. Doing it early, in markets where traditional venture investments hadn’t yet paid off, and being constantly hamstrung by a lack of resources is ludicrously difficult. We took more risks than we intended, made more mistakes than I care to admit, one of our founders (me) quit, and we hit obstacles that felt insurmountable enough we thought we were going to shut the company down just about every year…
