Named ‘the Crest’, the office is its 3rd entry into the African Tech market and is located in Kampala, Uganda. The launch would also involve the unveiling of its Country Director for Uganda (hinted to be a female).
Since its launch in 2014, Andela has continued to expand globally with offices in Lagos – Nigeria, Nairobi – Kenya, San Francisco and New York – US, and now Kampala -Uganda. This is a further step towards producing more exceptional African innovators.

Andela Uganda is another effort in discovering and developing the most talented programmers and innovators in Africa into the next generation of technology leaders across the globe. Just like their Nigerian and Kenyan counterparts, Andela developers in Uganda would be provided with the necessary expertise needed to accelerate the development of their local communities using technology.

As the second youngest population in the world with about 70% of its population (about 42M) below the age of 25, Uganda is also home to about 16 active tech hubs/incubators and over 50% of Uganda’s GDP is from the informal sector (self employment), which employs 80% of the total country’s workforce.
Considering the significant impact of technology on the informal sector, this serves as an opportunity for Andela to accelerate the country’s growth by harnessing their ‘young’ population to develop and produce exceptional African innovators.
