Local Start-up Unveils Online Marketplace For Mining Sector
A local company Zimvest Mining yesterday launched a virtual marketplace to connect players in the mining sector across the world.
The website provides a platform where providers of goods and services to the mining sector can list their businesses and products for free.
Zimvest Mining co-founder and chief executive officer Takunda Chifokoyo said online stores enable businesses in the mining sector to expand their horizons, allowing them to access new clients and find new opportunities. He said:
We want to make it easier for the entire mining community to function. Agriculture may be the backbone of the Zimbabwean economy but mining is its heart and soul.
The full utilisation of the Zimvest Mining platform will ensure greater liquidity for participants in the mining sector which in turn will lead to more jobs and increased revenue for the government.

It truly is a win-win situation.
Chifokoyo says Zimvest Mining wants players in the mining industry to go beyond brick and mortar locations as well as do away with WhatsApp and Facebook as platforms to conduct business. He said:
We want to do away with the use of WhatsApp and Facebook platforms to conduct business that should be done in a dedicated marketplace.
Think of Zimvest Mining as a mining shopping mall that brings everything in one place rather than leaving it to chance in a scattered market.
When it’s all said and done, this will be the Amazon.com of the local mining sector.
