Working with African start-ups to develop solutions by Africans, for Africa

Africa has a thriving entrepreneurial spirit. Using mobile and cloud technology, local entrepreneurs, developers and start-ups are creating highly relevant solutions that speak to their lifestyles and challenges.

Microsoft wants to ignite this spirit – and take Africa’s creations to the world.

4Afrika works closely with ISVs, developers, start-ups and SMEs to accelerate the development of highly relevant solutions and applications.

We have also partnered with 12 of the best accelerators across Africa to develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem and discover new talent to invest in.
