African Innovation Shines: Nigerian Startup GIFTY AI Claims Top Prize at World’s Largest Tech Event
GIFTY AI, a Nigerian startup that provides an AI-powered sales growth assistant for e-commerce businesses, has won the top prize in the Super Nova Challenge by North Star at GITEX 2023, the world’s largest tech event.
The company’s victory is a significant achievement for both Africa and the global tech community, and it puts Africa on the map as a hub for innovation and entrepreneurship.
GIFTY AI’s sales growth assistant helps e-commerce businesses to automate their marketing and sales activities so they can focus on growing their business.
The solution is especially beneficial for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), which often lack the resources to invest in traditional marketing and sales teams.
