About StartUpWestAfrica

StartUpWestAfrica.org was born when a team from Go-Getters decided to travel across Africa to explore the technology start-up ecosystem.

After exploring Ghana and Nigeria tech scene, we noticed that the start-up ecosystems in these various countries were not documented, which made it hard for us to know who was doing what and where they were based, compared to the East and the South of Africa. As a result, we relied solely on strong connections we built on ground. Start-Up West Africa was born with the aims to solve this problem, while providing free and easy access to data about the West African tech ecosystem.

Our data is leveraged daily by thousands of people across the globe for job search and industry research.

Our content is entirely crowd sourced, and furthermore we have developed a platform to ensure that our data is accurate and up to date.
