Sales & Marketing Interns at goAfrica
We are a global B2B e-commerce company with headquarters in London. Our offices are currently situated in Nairobi, Johannesburg, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. In 2019, we will open Cairo, Lagos and Mumbai.
Africa is at an inflection point in global trade, internet adoption and economic growth rates; however, Africa’s businesses are poorly served by existing regional e-commerce platforms.
We believe that Africa holds significant e-commerce potential. This stems from the continent’s impressive technological advancement that supports the opportunity to supply the increasing demand for good quality and competitively priced products.
After nearly two years of research and preparation, goAfrica began trading this year on our B2B marketplace platform www.goafrica.com
