Snapplify is at the forefront of edtech solutions in Africa, and specialises in enabling digital learning for individuals and institutions via the largest digital educational marketplace in Africa.
Thousands of schools, colleges and universities use Snapplify every day to teach, learn, and access educational content. Snapplify is the digital content partner on one of the widest-reaching digital interventions in Africa – a project that delivers technology and e-learning to public schools in South Africa’s Gauteng province.
As a socially minded company, Snapplify is committed to supporting others and creating sustainable change, globally, through collaboration and innovation. Snapplify runs impact programmes through the Snapplify Foundation, and empowers, inspires, and uplifts teachers via Teacha! (the largest community of teachers in Africa, working to empower, inspire, and uplift teachers through community platforms, a resource marketplace, and careers portal). Snapplify’s technology is also used in other educational products to facilitate collaboration throughout the educational community.
Snapplify originated in South Africa, focusing initially on the South African education and digital content industries. Since its establishment in 2012, the company has grown and expanded into new markets in Africa and the United States, with offices across South Africa, as well as in Nairobi, London, Amsterdam and New Jersey. Snapplify is backed by AngelHub Ventures, a venture capital company backed by former First National Bank CEO Michael Jordaan and the Harris family, as well as international investors. In 2019, Snapplify secured $2 million expansion capital from venture capital firm Knife Capital, and empowered African investment manager Hlayisani Capital’s Hlayisani Growth Fund.
Snapplify’s work has been recognised by leading global organisations, including the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) who have twice selected Snapplify as one of their Companies to Inspire Africa (2017 and 2019). Most recently, Snapplify was awarded an EdTech Breakthrough Award for Industry Leadership (2021); was a Bett Award (2020) finalist in the Innovator of the Year category; was named the overall winner of the Africa Region Gold Award at the 2020 Reimagine Education Awards in London; and was included on the esteemed 2020 HolonIQ EdTech 50 list – honours that are indicative of the company’s calibre in tech innovations.
