What is the APP?

The APP is the flagship initiative of Invest in Africa. The APP is an online marketplace that connects local businesses directly with multinationals and large companies in Kenya to do business in a transparent and cost-effective way.

The APP handles all aspects of the procurement process, from the advertising of tenders and opportunities to the validation and awarding of contracts.

The APP supports and empowers local businesses with its innovative functions:

  • Tenda-Space@APP – where small businesses can connect directly with large buying companies. Buyers will post tenders and procure through the APP. Suppliers receive notifications of new tenders and submit proposals or quotations in response to them.

  • Biashara-Network@APP – an interactive online community made up of Kenyan businesses registered in the APP. In this private Social Media community suppliers can network with each other, promote their businesses further and gain and exchange ideas.

  • Ujuzi-Hub@APP – our learning and education hub hosts insightful e-learning courses and content written by industry experts for use by APP Suppliers.

  • Access Procurement Financing services from our financial partners such as EQUITY BANK
