Founded in 2019, Techpadi Africa is a non-profit tech media organisation dedicated to bridging the gap between education and technology in Africa. Starting from Nigeria, our mission is to empower secondary schools and their students with the guidance, knowledge and skills needed to thrive in today’s digital age.

In addition to this, we tell “behind-the-scenes” stories of African techies, startups, products and entrepreneurs.

Our Mission

At Techpadi Africa, our mission is to celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of Africa’s tech space while building the next generation of African Techies. We achieve this by:

  • introducing students to the exciting world of technology and inspiring them to pursue careers in STEM;
  • telling the stories that matter about African startups and tech entrepreneurs.

We believe that with uninterrupted access to technology, limitless opportunities can be created for future generations, contributing to the growth of Africa’s tech ecosystem.
