We are delighted to receive this award based on the success story with YouScribe. The combination of a payment model adapted to African realities, the integration of local premium content and digital marketing campaigns, have been essential in making YouScribe a reference reading service on the continent.” Renaud Ganascia, Sales & Strategic Alliance Director Africa @ Digital Virgo
