Launched in 2013 by Moulaye and Kadry as a side-project to help a friend’s mother, we understood quickly that there was room for opportunity for distribution through the web for the African culture. With an outsourced MVP, we saw the first orders coming and we decided to dedicate full time to this growing project. With the coming of Luc, in 2016 we focused on Tech and Product and then launched Afrikrea, the marketplace, and Boom… a growth of 8% per week doubling our revenue every quarter and multiplying our revenue 10 times every year!
After several fundraisings, a move to Abidjan, the coming of our first team members, and a strong partnership with DHL, Afrikrea became the number 1 African eCommerce exporter.
In 2020, rich in these years of experience in direct contact with sellers and as entrepreneurs serving entrepreneurs, we understood that the challenges of the sellers were deeper than those solved by the marketplace, Afrikrea. Our sellers faced specific African issues such as the lack of visibility globally, the difficulty of shipping products worldwide from Africa, and the complexity of payments between international and local ways. To resolve these needs that exceed the perimeter of a simple marketplace, we decided to create Anka.
Anka, powered by Afrikrea, is the all-in-one solution for sellers of products « Made of Africa » (fashion, art, food, or beauty…) to sell from anywhere, ship worldwide, get paid faster on international or local African payment methods, and manage easily their businesses.
In January 2022, we raised 5,4 million euros from top-tier investors (including the founder of Alibaba) with a new purpose… Unleash the growth of African Entrepreneurship! To help us achieve this in the next 9 months, we are developing new services (App, Content, Coaching…) in a revenue-driven way and it’s the reason why we are looking for the right people.
