Who are we and what do we stand for?

1. Our story

Launched in 2013 by Moulaye and Kadry as a side project to help a friend’s mother, they understood quickly that there was room for opportunity for distribution through the web for African culture.

With an outsourced MVP, they saw the first orders coming and they decided to dedicate themselves full time to this growing project. With the coming of Luc, in 2016 they 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 the first team members, and a strong partnership with DHL, Afrikrea became the number 1 African eCommerce exporter.

Since starting, we enabled over 50m$ of transactions in175 countries!

2. The transition to Anka

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. The 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, they 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 easily manage their businesses. Our new vision is clear: Export Africa by building the future of selling globally!

In January 2023, we raised 15 million euros from top-tier investors (including the co-founder of Alibaba) and it’s the reason why we are looking for the right people to help us achieve this vision. Lately, we completed that round with a $5m extension from leading DFIs like the IFC and Proparco, setting us up for even higher raises and levels in the coming years !
