AfriLabs, a leading pan-African innovation organization, and Builder.ai, an AI-powered software platform for building and operating software projects, have joined forces to advance innovation and economic growth in Africa.
The partnership was unveiled at the AfriLabs Annual Gathering event in Kigali, Rwanda, from October 11 to 13, where a Memorandum of Understanding was signed. This collaboration brings Builder.ai’s innovative platform to Africa, offering its powerful Builder.ai Studio Pro and tools to the region. The goal is to empower individuals, organizations, and platforms, both technical and non-technical, to efficiently build and operate software projects.
By harnessing artificial intelligence and machine learning, Builder.ai simplifies app development, enabling those without coding experience to expedite their journey to market. This addresses a significant challenge for African entrepreneurs and innovators who often lack the resources, technical expertise, and time required to develop essential software.
Ajibola Odukoya, Chief Operating Officer at AfriLabs, emphasized the potential of Builder.ai’s platform to transform the African entrepreneurial landscape.
This partnership strategically positions Builder.ai to broaden its services across Africa, supporting startups and enterprises with digitization and acceleration. Varghese Cherian, Chief Revenue Officer of Builder.ai, expressed excitement about contributing to the continent’s growth in its entirety.
