Big Idea: 

Millions of African farmers depend on livestock to make a living, but more than 30% of their animals die because they don’t get basic vaccinations and care. Cowtribe gets livestock veterinary services to the last mile. They’ve figured out the necessary systems to aggregate animals and owners and connect them with efficient vet teams. Their low-cost services boost incomes and brightens prospects.

Peter is an entrepreneur and technologist from northern Ghana. He studied development at the University for Development, started a company to support high growth African startups, and then joined WorldCover, a crop insurance social enterprise. Peter grew up in a family of livestock keepers and always had a love for animals, so it wasn’t long before he had the idea for CowTribe and took on this new venture.
