According to VKAV Partner, Ory Okolloh, “Low insurance penetration in many African countries is not a new problem, many players both mainstream and start-ups have tried to tackle the low penetration rates described above from various angles. However, we believe that mTek is in a strong position to solve the existing challenges through a combination of a superior technology platform and strong partnerships.”
