Data Startups in Sudan


Sudan still suffers from the issue of data illiteracy, which resulted in massive scarcity of the existence of publicly available online datasets and databases about any topic in Sudan or focused on Sudan. The only publicly available datasets are those created by the NGOs like the UN, FAO, and other organisations, which focus mainly on humanitarian disasters or nutrition, and food, which is not enough in order to create a robust business ecosystem in Sudan to push the wheel of financial profits for both the private and public sectors, revenue, and creation of new jobs in Sudan.

Of course most of the companies in the private sector do have their own data sets and business intelligence reports but most of them are not available publicly and they’re only dedicated to their business operations, customers, and market research especially the telecommunications industry.

Luckily several startups took initiative to try fill this gap of the disparate need of data about Sudan.

The road to a data-driven and data-oriented business and life culture in Sudan is still very long, but better to start now than never. And hopefully we would be able to see these startups grow more and also see more data startups in future in Sudan to close this hideous gap of data scarcity and data illiteracy in Sudan.
