Your window into Africa's tech ecosystem.
Hello, Africa's tech enthusiasts, builders, and curious minds!
We are thrilled to introduce Vizible, a platform dedicated to shedding light on the vibrant and innovative African tech ecosystem. Our mission is simple: to make the African tech ecosystem more accessible and
We envision a future where Africa's tech space is transparent, well-documented, and accessible to everyone, irrespective of their background or location. We aim to be the go-to platform for discovering African products, understanding the how of building products in Africa and fostering a vibrant community of like-minded individuals passionate about the continent's tech advancements.
Over the years, the African tech ecosystem has witnessed tremendous growth, with new startups emerging and securing funding at an unprecedented rate. The global interest in African startups has increased significantly, thanks to their potential for innovation and the positive impact they can have on local communities.
Yet, despite this progress, there's a glaring gap in the available information, and resources, tailored to those who care about the space, and are building or hope to build in this space. We've been there too—subscribing to multiple newsletters, following influencers on social media, and struggling to find in-depth insights and genuine conversations about the products being built right here on our continent.
That's why we created Vizible: to fill this gap. Vizible is more than just a platform; it's a community designed to bring together like-minded individuals passionate about building and investing in African tech. To help bring this vision to life, we've crafted our platform around the values that we hold dear:
We are human-centred: We prioritize understanding and elevating the voices of the people behind the innovations in our ecosystem. We treat everyone with dignity and respect, championing their stories and experiences.
We are explorers: We are driven by a passion for learning and discovery. We embrace the unknown, pursuing our curiosities, and tackling challenges head-on.
We are generous: We believe in sharing our knowledge and experiences with others, enriching lives, and making a positive impact in our ecosystem.
We are growth-oriented: We recognize that there's always room for improvement, and so we embrace challenges as opportunities to learn and grow together.
We are vibrant: Our lively, energetic approach is reflected in all that we do. We are an authentic, fun, and passionate community that thrives on self-expression and creativity.
Vizible is not just another tech blog or podcast—we're an all-encompassing platform that brings together three crucial elements: consolidated product discovery, product-focused content, and a supportive community for professionals.
Consolidated platform to discover African products: Gone are the days of juggling multiple sources to stay informed about products in the African tech ecosystem. With Vizible, you can conveniently access information on various products and companies at your fingertips. Stay tuned as we’d be launching this in April 2023.
Practical & product-focused content: We believe that in-depth, product-focused information is essential to understanding the African tech landscape. Our content dives into the what, why, who, and how of products being built, making it easier for you to learn and grow within the ecosystem.
Supportive community for product professionals & builders: Building is hard. That is why vizible is committed to fostering a community where builders & product professionals can ask serious questions, get help, and learn from one another. By centering on operators and builders, we aim to create a space that supports growth and collaboration within the ecosystem.
To kick off this exciting journey, we are launching our podcast and opening up our community sign-up form today.
Our podcast, Build, will delve deeper into the lives and work of the people building Africa's most innovative tech products. We will be interviewing operators, founders, and investors to get a well-rounded view of the ecosystem. We're focused on bringing you inspiring stories, informative discussions, and practical advice that you can use in your own journey.
And lastly, we're inviting you to join the Vizible Collective, a members-only space where you can connect with fellow builders, share knowledge, and get help with the tough questions that come with building in our ecosystem. You’ll also get to participate in curated programs designed to support your growth as a product builder.
To celebrate, we've created a fun quiz called "Vizible Vibe" that will help you discover your unique vibe and see how you might fit in with the Vizible community. We invite you to take the quiz, share your results with your friends.
To celebrate our launch, we invite you to take our fun and engaging quiz, Vizible Vibe. Discover which aspect of the African tech ecosystem resonates with you the most and share your results with your friends and colleagues!
