African Changemaker

Miishe Addy

Miishe is a Ghanaian entrepreneur pioneering her path in Africa’s logistics industry.

Born in Texas, Miishe grew up in the US, where she earned a philosophy degree from Harvard.

However, she always felt the need to do something more innovative to impact her home country.
She eventually moved back to Ghana in 2017 to teach and mentor software entrepreneurs through the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) program.

It was during her time at the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology that she met Solomon Torgbor.
The two partnered and co-founded Jetstream Africa, an e-logistics company for cross-border trade that provides technology-enabled freight forwarding, trade financing, and cargo tracking tools for African businesses.

Founded in 2018, Jetstream Africa is on a mission to simplify global trade logistics for African businesses.
Miishe is currently serving as Jetstream Africa’s CEO, leading the company’s drive to build a digital infrastructure for the continent’s trade corridors.
