Appfrica is a firm which helps the world's leading technology companies and innovation centric organizations enter African markets. Appfrica offers creative program design, market research and technical solutions, in addition to regional support in over 16 Sub-Saharan African countries.
Founded in 2008 in Kampala, Uganda, we work with NGOs, government agencies, foundations, and corporations who are seeking technical expertise in African countries. We work with local staff to deliver market research, custom technology solutions, and investments in emerging markets.
We're a for-profit venture that uses a portion of our profits to support various social impact initiatives: Abayima, an NGO that enables technology and information access for the poor, the 1500 sq ft. co-working & innovation space HiveColab, and we invest in Africa's next generation of brilliant minds through Apps4Africa.
