Ghanaian tech startup Saya Mobile finished top of the 20 most prospective tech startups to watch in Africa.

The list released by world renowned top tech website also listed Ghana’s award-winning digital and mobile advertising startup AdsBrook at number three and the internationally recognized web messaging platform Dropifi at number 16.

Saya Mobile is a mobile chat app which works across iOS, Android, Blackberry and Java platforms. Like Dropifi, Saya is one of many startups which emerged from the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) based in Accra Ghana.

Saya has been touted as Africa’s answer to Whatsapp, because even though it borrowed from SMS technology, it is, as CEO of the company Robert Nii Lante Lamptey put it “1,000 times cheaper than SMS”.
