With the beta opening of Kigali’s Norrsken House co-working spaces slated for December, the Norrsken East Africa Foundation has announced its first startup investments in PesaChoice and Viebeg Technologies – two Kigali-based startups.
Financial services technology company PesaChoice works to close the gap between salary payments and other unforeseen expenses faced by people with limited access to institutional credit. Users can quickly but efficiently apply for fixed rate microloans, eliminating the need for predatory lenders, administrative records and long wait times.
Viebeg is an e-health startup offering a sourcing platform that ensures healthcare facilities are getting the right type and quantity of products stored to save patients. The company’s software is used by more than 230 hospitals in Rwanda, Burundi and Congo.
Niklas Adalberth founded Norrsken in 2016 to help entrepreneurs solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.
We are delighted to have Norrsken as an investor and partner. Their commitment to improving the tech ecosystem in Rwanda is amazing and we look forward to making medical supplies affordable and accessible across East Africa together! #viebegrwanda #Partnership #norrsken pic.twitter.com/JL0l5XxnEe
