Startuplist Africa, a data-driven platform that helps you discover and gain insight into the African Startup Ecosystem has launched to provide important data and metrics on individual companies and industries across the continent.
Startuplist Africa is more of an African version of Silicon Valley’s Product Hunt and aims to be a database of all apps, investors, and startups in Africa to bring the African startup ecosystem to the world. The project is run by a team of tech, research and business professionals who are grounded and passionate about the African Startup Ecosystem.
According to the founder Emmanuel Ibe, “There’s a need for an official list – a platform where you can learn how companies are evolving across the continent. A list that keeps a record of the key metrics that drive the growth of African startups. This list can also effectively solve other problems like discovery and due-diligence”
Ibe says the platform’s mission is to use a data-driven approach to bridge the opportunity and knowledge gap for local and international investors, researchers, entrepreneurs and government officials to make guided decisions on their next ventures.
“At Startuplist Africa, we currently track various metrics on the platform. These include: information on startup fundings, growth metrics, competitors, team size, tech stack, presentations, interviews, news, and other insights with more to come.”
“We ensure our data is authentic and contains information on real and active startups across Africa. Our network, team of researchers and intelligent systems constitute some of the ways with which we find and list African Startups on the platform. “
Startuplist Africa was launched in June and is committed to bringing valuable information on African Startups and Ecosystem..
