  • "Building tech companies in the land of dialup..."

  • "Appfrica is an organization that strives to create more tech jobs and hone more innovative tech minds in Africa."

  • "While commodities such as oil and gas are still doing big business in Africa, there is a quiet revolution being led by the fast growing design and technology sector – the ‘new gold’ that, with the availability of cheap smart phones supplied by the Chinese, is fast becoming Africa’s hottest commodity."

    The Southern African
In 2010 we invested in one of Africa's most prominent innovation hubs, Hive Colab, in Kampala, Uganda. It serves as a training facility and event space for our corporate partners like Mozilla, Microsoft and more!
