We are a technology firm, on a mission to digitalise businesses and consumers in Africa. Through our bridgeafrica.com platform, we help SMEs create websites, gain database visibility, sell online and network. We equally manage an online artisanal platform, cameroongallery.com, which helps craft artists sell their goods globally. Through our consulting services, we provide expert support to public and private entities.
With 87.5% of businesses lacking websites and 99% having never sold online, the digital divide is limiting the economic growth and productivity of businesses in Cameroon and Africa. That is why we are on a mission to see every SME in Africa have a digital identity so they can expand their market space and sell more online.
Our vision is to help SMEs and other economic actors in Africa overcome the traditional barriers they face to integrate into the digital economy, such as a lack of websites, no internet access, and digital illiteracy.
To conquer the digital divide in Africa, we provide tailored solutions that include innovative applications and multimedia content that facilitates the integration of economic actors into the digital economy. Most notably is bridgeafrica.com, a cross-engineered problems-meet-solution platform helping SMEs and consumers join the digital economy.
To help SMEs in the handicraft sector, we have cameroongallery.com, an e-commerce platform that directly connects the world to original crafts from Cameroon.
Content is king. This is why we create innovative media content to connect businesses.
