East Africa has more than 120 million citizens and by the end of 2009 there were almost 50 million mobile subscribers in the region resulting in a mobile penetration of 40% of the total population. This makes mobile phones one of the most widely available platforms for information dissemination and interactive communication. Due to technological advancements, the mobile phone has become an all-in-one device that can be carried and used almost anywhere. Internet is going mobile, from desktop to pocket, and innovative applications are today a great opportunity for businesses, organisations and governments to reach out and interact with clients and citizens.
Our business focuses on eight core platforms:
- Content: aggregation and distribution
- Publishing: creating compelling content
- Messaging: building the gateways for communication
- Social platforms: leveraging social media and social networks

Companies around the world are looking for online and mobile platforms to increase sales, reduce costs, streamline communications and create competitive advantage. With the relentless advancement of web and mobile technology the market is poised for growth as never before.
Nonetheless, there remains a lack of expertise in what works, what doesn’t and how to apply these advances to achieve business value. We fill in this void by sharing knowledge and providing relevant platforms for engagement to companies, governments, non-governmental organizations, SME’s and individuals looking to realize the full benefit of mobile and web technology.
