Founded in 2010, Agasha Business Network aspires to become the largest and most interactive business community website in Africa. The company focuses on small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that wish to promote their products and services online, but a lack of capital and knowledge prevents them from creating their own website.
The network creates an opportunity for all its members to access the global market and empowers entrepreneurs to access previously unreachable consumers. Besides creating a network for businesses, Agasha is also interested in promoting projects with a positive impact on the community. Consequently, it prioritises and offers substantial reductions for local environmental NGOs and youth initiatives to use the platform. Read more
