Xrystalgenius – Intelligent By Design. A Kenyan Mobile Startup

Xrystalgenius is a mobile startup that was created by a team of four young entrepreneurial mobile technology enthusiasts. Its main aim is to make a difference in mobile education, mobile payments, entertainment and society. We wish to provide African solutions to problems both in Africa and beyond. We believe that of all technologies that have ever been invented, nothing has a wider reach in Africa and the world over as the mobile phone. We believe that some of the world’s core problems have solutions hidden in technologies around us and it up to us to sit down and dig up those solutions.
