WDL has long-term plans to use the power of data science to improve the quality of life for people in Africa by partnering with private and public sector players and raising awareness around key impact topics. In addition, the company is in the process of opening a physical office in Kenya with ambitious growth plans on the continent. WDL’s first Ubuntuland based projects currently under evaluation and construction are:


  • Developing a Data Science Metaversity with data insights and visualisation for anyone who wants to learn more about Africa through interactive tools and gamification
  • Opening a Consumer Insights hub for organisations looking to establish or expand their footprint in the fast-growing African market
