Afrolabs: Create the world.
We help tech startups create great products. Guiding ideas along the path to building the right thing, and to building the thing right.
The Lean Iterator process we co-created starts with ideation and exploration, helping products journey from thought, through customer/market experiments, to iteration planning. This approach is based on Customer Development and Lean Startup.
The Afrolabs Core dev & design team then builds and tests working software as the product grows and adapts based on discoveries. Our teams work their magic in a lean-agile way, based on Scrum and Extreme Programming frameworks. Our server-side technologies of choice are almost exclusively Python and Google Cloud Platform, although there are other stacks in adopted projects.
After helping a product into the world, our TeamBuilder approach helps grow the right development team with great people and culture. Coding is a super-power. To help people in Africa learn to use this superpower, LevelUp (our NPC) is a local organiser for CoderDojo, CodeCombat in the township, CodeRetreats and Lean Iterator. This helps grow talent from 7-70+.
"We are creating the world we want to live in: products, work-places, communities."
