About Boost

In early 2020 we started with an idea: to power growth for millions of retail entrepreneurs in the convenience economy with a B2B commerce platform. Then Covid arrived, creating a tipping point for digitisation. Within six months, Boost was operating in three of Africa’s most important economies.

Every market we enter starts with partnerships and local founding teams who are experienced entrepreneurs. This frictionless approach enables us to listen, learn, build, and iterate on a shared platform that can serve the similarities and differences across very diverse markets.

And we’re just getting started on our journey to build and serve the most powerful network of retail entrepreneurs across Africa.
