  • Africa needs to create at least 120 million jobs by 2012 to maintain it’s current trends of a growing middle class. Those jobs are not going to come from government mandates or multi-national corporations, they are going to come from successful startups and entrepreneurs.
  • Appfrica was founded in 2008 in Kampala, Uganda as a company focused on three drivers of growth for Africa’s knowledge economy focused on three drivers of change for Africa’s knowledge economy: mentoring young technologists, investing in their ideas with time, attention, and capital, while highlighting their successes across the continent. Our goal is to give early stage African companies more paths to financing, whether that be grant programs for the non-profits, or venture financing for the for-privates.
  • The Apps4Africa 2012 Business Challenge is a competitive funding program open to African innovators, startups, and businesses. What does this mean? In previous years we held 'app competitions' which rewarded African innovators who sought to solve difficult local problems using technology. However, the biggest feedback we got from A4A participants was that they were more interested in follow-on support for their various initiatives following the competition.Drawing upon that feedback, as of 2012, our new model means there will be no longer be a strictly defined number of winners, rather we'll review every application and judge it based on sustainability, scalability, profitability, in addition to social impact. We feel such companies are in the best position for growth, and thus ready for our funding and acceleration program which aims to prime them for follow-on investment. The competition is open to any company, startup or innovator living and working in Africa.

  • Women in technology Uganda is an initiative that seeks to encourage, inspire and train more women in the tech field through networking, training, mentoring and partnering so as to increase the number of women in tech, the number of tech women entrepreneurs and more girls to take science courses at university so as to reduce the gender gap and compete favorably with our male counterparts for jobs and improve the livelihoods of women in Uganda
