    When Kelechi Anyadiegwu started her online African clothing store Zuvaa with $500 two years ago, her idea was to share African-inspired designs with consumers around the world. Zuvaa is estimated to make $2 million in sales in 2016.

    What I like about this story is that it's not a typical SV unicorn story. Someone took a well established model and brought something to market. The African start-up scene is popping.
