“The AppsAfrica.com Awards were first organised three years ago to celebrate the best in mobile and tech across the continent and it is fantastic to see the growth each year, with entries from over 31 countries this year. Even more encouraging is how rapidly African start-ups are now scaling to compete with established corporates with winners from both” shared Andrew Fassnidge founder of AppsAfrica.com.
