This episode is brought to you by HostGator.com, web hosting that scales from easy to expert.

The news came barely a month after Canva raised $60 million, at a $6bn valuation, and partnered with FedEx Office to break into the US market. Canva’s next move was into Africa, and it chose to partner with Kiakiaprint.  For a startup like Kiakiaprint which prints and delivers custom designs on demand, it’s quite a perfect match. Tunde Ademuyiwa: “Canva has 30 million users globally. Before the lockdown, they were 20 million and it’s growing.” Narrator: That’s Tunde Ademuyiwa, co-founder and CEO of Kiakiaprint.  Tunde Ademuyiwa: “They align with our vision.
