SafeBoda is a rapidly growing consumer platform that is revolutionizing transportation, payments and on-demand services in Africa. SafeBoda has built a large motorcycle-taxi  (commonly known as the boda boda in East Africa) community that is bringing safety, trust and professionalization to an informal industry that is vital to the livelihoods of millions of drivers and passengers across the rapidly growing cities of East and West Africa.

Based in Kampala, Nairobi, Lagos and Barcelona, we are a company that is already having huge impact for millions in East Africa. In November 2018, SafeBoda was announced among the 2018 AppsAfrica award winners at an event held in Cape Town and we beat four startups from Nigeria and South Africa to become the Best African App.

At the heart of Poblenou (the centre of innovation and technology in Barcelona), and 600m away from the beach, SafeBoda opened late 2018, the Barcelona Tech Hub.
