About

Welcome to Africa’s startup portal!

Disrupt Africa is a one-stop-shop for all news, information and commentary pertaining to the continent’s tech startup – and investment – ecosystem.

With journalists roaming the continent to find, meet, and interview the most innovative and disruptive tech startups, Disrupt Africa is a true showcase of Africa’s most promising businesses and business ideas.

Our readers can keep up-to-date with the quirky world of tech hubs and accelerator programmes; and our reporters provide live coverage of the all-important tech and entrepreneurship events across Africa.

For our startup, entrepreneur, and investor friends alike, our mission is to provide practical information and advice from across Africa’s varied vibrant markets, and to promote engaged and thought-provoking discussion about the exciting ecosystem we belong to.

We are also the producers of Disrupt Podcast, the fortnightly podcast dedicated to Africa’s startup ecosystems, available on Soundcloud, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and all other podcasting platforms.

Aside from its journalism, Disrupt Africa has also developed a research arm that releases publications tracking the development of the African tech startup ecosystem, and Pipeline, which helps connects corporates, investors and accelerators with innovative tech startups. It is also the organiser of the annual Africa Startup Summit in Kigali, Rwanda.
