Many of them have longer work experience in diverse countries and sectors as compared to glorified college dropouts of Silicon Valley. Zola launched products in Tanzania but had teams in Asia (manufacturing), Europe (logistics), and Silicon Valley (research and development). “The arrogance of Silicon Valley has no place at the Frontier – nor, increasingly, in Silicon Valley itself,” Alex emphasises.
