About Appfrica Ventures

Appfrica facilitates, mentors and incubates entrepreneurs in software in East Africa. Entrepreneur projects are refined and prepped to help them secure funding and launch sustainable, profitable businesses. This project is loosely modeled after Paul Graham’s Y Combinator, providing small amounts of seed capital to startups. Appfrica Labs has also started an International Fellows Program which brings developers from all over the world to work alongside local Entrepreneurs as peers and mentors. That program can be learned about here.

We are a for-profit incubator and software development firm currently based out of Kampala, Uganda. The mission is to offer opportunities and work experience for East African software entrepreneurs so that they can then use their talents to bolster the growing local markets by offering products and services. Appfrica picks up where East African colleges leave off by offering hands-on experience in programming technologies like Java, C++, C#, Ruby on Rails, Django and Python, CouchDB, PHP, Perl, Kannel and that aren’t often taught in-depth locally at university. These skills are highly valued around the world and professionals in these areas helps to make East Africa a more attractive place to develop software, not only locally, but also for international companies. Appfrica Labs also provides oversight, guidance and fund managment to the projects that are launched out of the incubator.
