Gebeya Inc., a leading Pan African tech leadership company, today announced its evolution into a premier all-in-one Talent Cloud provider.

This strategic repositioning marks a significant milestone in Gebeya’s journey — revolutionizing how the world connects with talent, Africa, and beyond.

As Gebeya strengthens its focus, it becomes clear that this new chapter is only a product of the momentum built over the past 7 years.

It is more than simply transitioning away from the iconic purple and orange logo. The startup’s growth trajectory has been nothing short of remarkable, marked by the empowerment of thousands of talented individuals and the facilitation of countless partnerships with industry giants such as Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Mastercard Foundation, Safaricom, and more.

“Our team has always been proactive about continuously innovating and thinking outside the box to provide 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. We are looking forward to helping our partners launch thousands of Talent Clouds in the coming years,” stated Amadou Daffe, Co-Founder & CEO of Gebeya.

The company started off as an EdTech startup in 2017, looking to train as many talents on the continent as possible. It then evolved into a trusted 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.

The company has now consolidated all of its strengths into Gebeya 3.0 to launch the Gebeya Talent Cloud: entering a new era with its scalable Gebeya Talent Cloud (G-TC) technology — an AI-powered and configurable SaaS platform with the ability to address any organization’s needs specifically.

Gebeya’s 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 offer opportunities to qualified networks of individuals and professionals.

For talent across the continent, whether you are a nurse, engineer, teacher, driver, nanny, or more, with Gebeya as a Talent Cloud solution, you will have the choice to access and join the Talent Cloud that fits your profession, skills, or interests.

As a software developer, for example, you can now join not just one Talent Cloud but also the Talent Clouds of our established customers and valued partners like Microsoft, who provide: access to skilling, jobs, business opportunities, membership benefits, and networking in multiple professional ecosystems.

As a profound testament to Gebeya’s strategic realignment, Microsoft has signed a ground-breaking partnership with Gebeya 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. Talent looking to secure opportunities within the Microsoft ecosystem will now have a single platform to update on the latest Microsoft skills, find Microsoft-related jobs and gigs, access Microsoft-related business opportunities, and stay connected to a community of Microsoft professionals like themselves.

On top of that, last year Gebeya signed a $48 Million partnership with the Mastercard Foundation focused on accelerating Ethiopia’s Gig Economy and entrepreneurial growth.

The 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.

Looking only to the future — Gebeya aims to skyrocket Africa’s potential and global competitiveness with its revolutionary Talent Cloud technology.

Gebeya is not only connecting Africans with global opportunities but also revolutionizing how the world views and leverages African expertise in the first place.

This is more than a mission; it’s a story of growth, empowerment, and a new era of collaboration.
