Gozem has launched an app that offers logistics, transportation, e-commerce, and other financial services across mostly francophone African countries.
Gozem was founded in 2018 by Raphael Dana, and Emeka Ajene and looks to be the next African super-App, mimicking the likes of WeChat and Gojek that are huge in China and Southeast Asia. Gozem now adds its presence past Togo and Benin with its entry into Gabon.
According to the report on TechCabal, the startup has over half a million registered users who have completed 2.5 million trips since its inception. Outside West Africa, Gabon is the first central African market. The country has a youthful population of 2.5 million with 70% below the age of 30.
We reported the launch of Gozem’s super app that gives its users a raft of options from ride-hailing, delivery, e-commerce, and acts as a wallet.
We earlier reported how Gozem signed an agreement with AAIC to provide health services. The startup also acquired Togo’s first food delivery startup Delivroum.
