Monthly Roundup – July 2022
It’s been a busy month for the World Mobile team. From an AMA with World Mobile CEO Micky Watkins and IO CEO Charles Hoskinson to exciting new partnership announcements, here are the highlights from this month:
Extended partnership with Fulham FC
We recently announced that we’ll be extending our partnership with Fulham FC for the 2022/23 season. The World Mobile logo will move to the sleeve of the official matchday shirt and will also be featured on the front of the official training kit this season.
This will help showcase the World Mobile brand to billions of people around the world, growing our global exposure and movement.
Check out the recent viral video of Fulham player Antonee Robinson rocking the new training kit as he performs an impressively smooth card trick, or read more about our partnership with Fulham on our blog.
A chat with Charles Hoskinson
This month, we published a interview we conducted with Input Output CEO Charles Hoskinson at Consensus 2022.
He shared his excitement around World Mobile and the progress we’re making in our mission to connect the unconnected:
“I think you guys have an extraordinary offering and it’s really exciting to see it go from an idea to a reality that will transform and change the lives of millions of people.”
AMA with World Mobile and IO
Charles Hoskinson also featured alongside World Mobile CEO, Micky Watkins, in an AMA conducted on Twitter Spaces this month.
This was an excellent opportunity to field questions from the community and explore the latest developments around World Mobile’s rollout and our partnership with Input Output.
Partnering for affordable housing and connectivity
We announced this month that we will be supporting Empowa to help deliver affordable housing and connectivity in Beira, Mozambique.
The synergy of our network and Empowa’s decentralised home financing is poised to provide life-changing opportunities for people in Beira.
