Gregoire Schwebig, Founder & CEO, AfricaWorks says “The team at AfricaWorks is ecstatic about the API award! This milestone gives us confidence in the work we have accomplished on our two year anniversary and energizes us to achieve our future plans. At AfricaWorks, our purpose is to unlock Africa’s potential through work by opening 100 AfricaWorks in 20+ cities in Africa by 2025.
AfricaWorks has experienced record growth since its launch in 2019: from 1 single coworking space, the company has expanded into 10 spaces in 8 cities across the continent, with companies like L’Oreal, Universal Music, Toyota, Glovo, etc. as its members. The increasing demand for good quality coworking spaces from Multinationals, SMEs, and Startups in the African Market has been instrumental to the growth of AfricaWorks. These entities rationalize their operational cost through the AfricaWorks turnkey system of professional corporate flex offices that empowers companies to accelerate business opportunities and drive innovation under OneRoof®.
Schwebig in his final acceptance note said “The sky is merely our springboard, and this achievement is possible because of the dedication of our incredible AfricaWorks team, and our growing Member base who tap into our vision of building a vibrant business community under OneRoof®.”
