The Company


Enhancing African lives one mobile solution at a time


The Why

The marriage between the internet and mobile phones has made information available in ways never experienced in history thus enhancing lives all over the globe. Fingersfingers was created to extend this experience to Africa. With its own unique challenges needing unique solutions, Fingersfingers exists solely to identify pain points affecting Africans wherever they may be and providing mobile based solutions for these problems. 

Founded in Glasgow, UK in 2014, we are currently based in Glasgow with plans of opening a new branch by September 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria. Africa's mega city and most populous country to position the company for growth in Africa. 

Business Model.

Our business model is quite simple.
Through in depth market knowledge, research and experience, we identify true problems affecting Africans in and outside Africa, create web and mobile solutions for these problems and grow these solutions into commercially successful companies. Our solutions are intended to help Africans save money or make money while creating better value for their lives and businesses.

Our Passion


We believe everyday African human lives can be enhanced through mobile technology.

Our Passion


We believe everyday African human lives can be enhanced through mobile technology.

Education

Knowledge is power. An educated Africa is an independent, progressive and entrepreneurial Africa. At Fingersfingers we see the need to shift the focus from the traditional approach to education to a more innovative mobile forms of delivery which costs less and is not dependent on ones geo-location. 

Commerce

Web and mobile technology has shifted the relegation of commerce from physical brick and mortar locations with its obvious barriers to online which provides a wider reach and cheaper set up fees. The African e-commerce landscape is growing up nicely with lots of untapped opportunities to get Africa's numerous market people trading online. 

Social

Africa by nature is social. The communal nature of Africans is evident in its various cultures. Social media is todays answer to online communities and the uniqueness of Africa  leaves a lot to be done in these area. Facebook and Twitter has made tremendous advances in this area but a massive need still exists for niche social networks designed and built to reflect the different African cultures, languages and vibe.

Transportation

For the untrained eye and mind, Africa's lack of advanced and in most places basic transport facilities looks like a negative. At Fingersfingers we see this as an opportunity to improve the daily commute of Africans using mobile driven innovative shared economy solutions which already proved successful in other parts of the world.  

Enterprise

Enterprise mobile applications can greatly  encourage entrepreneurship. More people can set up online businesses in a matter of minutes for free thus helping more people improve their sources of income. With more small businesses in a system, the more money can circulate around the economy, increase in labour and decrease in poverty.  

Health

With Apple's Health Kit, hospitals and doctors are now connecting with patients in ways never imagined. At Fingersfingers we understand that majority of Africans and African health  are not at the financial and technical level to utilise such technologies. We therefore exist to improve the relationship between doctors and other healthcare professionals in Africa with their patients using mobile technology.

Africa and Africans Globally.

The Market


Africa and Africans Globally.

With Africa's economy and population growing in leaps yearly, our target market is Africa with a core focus on Nigeria as its most populous and prosperous country. 
Nigeria with a population of 180,000,000 people with over 50% of its population between the ages of 15 - 35 and a 127% adoption of mobile phones, our target market is secured and strong. 
We will be launching each of our mobile solutions first in Nigeria before scaling up to other African countries. 

Our first solution Gombolola was launched in the UK in April 2016. Gombolola enables Africans living or visiting outside Africa, find and connect with everything African around them.
