Gebeya Inc. rebrands itself as Talent Cloud Provider

ADDIS ABABA – Gebeya Inc., a Pan-African tech company, rebrands itself as a premier all-in-one Talent Cloud provider.

This repositioning marks a significant milestone in the Addis Ababa-based company’s journey.

The startup’s growth trajectory over the past seven years saw the facilitation of thousands of talented individuals’ partnerships with Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Mastercard Foundation, Safaricom, and other industry giants.

Its Co-Founder and CEO Amadou Daffe said Gebeya’s team has always been proactive about continuously providing “employment or entrepreneurship opportunities to as many African talents on the continent as possible.”

“From the beginning, Gebeya’s heart has always been in opportunity creation… all powered by technology. That is one component that will always stay constant for us,” Amadou said. “We are looking forward to helping our partners launch thousands of Talent Clouds in the coming years.”

Gebeya started off as an EdTech startup in 2017, looking to train as many talents on the continent as possible. It then evolved into a multi-sided Marketplace to connect tech talent with open roles. Finally, it turned that Marketplace into a Software As A Service (SaaS) that companies, organizations, or entrepreneurs could utilize for their own needs—several iterations in a short time.

Gebeya has now consolidated all of its strengths into Gebeya 3.0, entering a new era with its scalable Gebeya Talent Cloud (G-TC) technology.

The AI-powered Talent Cloud solutions and offerings include Public, Private, Strategic, and Sourcing Talent Clouds that allow you to source, vet, qualify, skill, build communities, and provide opportunities to qualified networks of individuals and professionals.

As part of its strategic realignment, Gebeya signed a partnership agreement with Microsoft to launch a 300,000-strong African Talent Cloud:, emphasizing Microsoft Azure and AI skills.

The Microsoft Talent Cloud creates a central platform where Microsoft distributors, partners, and customers can find the businesses and professionals they need to further their digital transformation ambitions.

Similarly, Gebeya also signed a $48 Million partnership with the Mastercard Foundation last year aiming to accelerate Ethiopia’s Gig Economy and entrepreneurial growth. This partnership is looking to deploy and support anywhere from technology, business, advisory support, and more, to 100 Gig Platform Marketplaces or Talent Clouds in different sectors to operate their own multi-sided marketplace companies, the tech firm says.
