Biscate, or “odd-job” in Mozambican slang, uses hybrid technology to connect blue-collar, informal workers to customers. Frederico Peres da Silva, Biscate’s 33-year-old founder, believes he can positively impact Mozambique’s “widespread challenge of low employment and income opportunities.” In an economy dominated by informal, blue-collar workers, Biscate offers an opportunity for laborers to competitively market their skills.
