Our mission is to recognize and cherish greatness in people to inspire others.

Gem Recognitions’ mission is to recognize and cherish  Africa’s basket of gems. We all have unending power within ourselves that know little about, all we need is a mentor or a point of reference that has done it before so that we can ignite the gem that is asleep.

The potential of this is huge. If we can execute on our mission, we’re going to make a big impact on Africa and the entire world. We just need to get a smart group of people together that can get us there.

Why Gem Recognitions?
Our Values

1. Maximize long-term value

We are building a product that we hope lasts forever. We want to be a strong and independent engine, this long term focus guides all of the decisions we make.

2. Continuously learn and adapt

We value experimentation, metrics-driven decisions, and speed of iteration. We push to production with every commit so we launch as soon as work is done and learn as quickly as possible.

3. Execute

We value people who have great ideas but who also can quickly drive them all the way to bring their ideas into life.

4. Be direct and respectful

We expect and welcome constant feedback. We trust each other to be open and straightforward, so if you have anything in mind don’t hesitate to call us.
