Leading Pan-African company, Bookings Africa has announced the launch of a new app to improve talent search and enhance traveling experience.
The app affords users the opportunity to search for a variety of talent, compare their transparent prices, book online, pay securely and provide ratings and reviews for services across Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya.
Speaking on the new initiate, Fadé Ogunro, CEO of Bookings Africa, said “I believe Africa is the future, yet, the biggest problem we face is unemployment. Bookings Africa tackles this issue by enabling millions of freelancers to gain recognition, monetize their talent and build a sustainable career on their own terms.
“This means you can create your personal profile, upload your work portfolio, set your own rates, availability and manage your business better with guaranteed payments all at the tap of a button.”
She mentioned that whiles working in the media industry as a producer for over a decade, she found many limitations when trying to source creatives across the continent.
“The process is currently expensive, time-consuming and extremely inefficient. I have dedicated the last 3 years of my life creating this innovative tech-enabled solution, that will reshape Africa’s workforce. This is my vision for Bookings Africa; an Africa that works,” she added.
Mayowa Ayodele, Chief Investment Officer of UnicornGroup said, “We are excited to partner with Fadé and her team who have built a strong technology-led and scalable business that is harnessing and monetising the latent talent of Africans across the continent. We believe that investing in Bookings Africa has the potential to revolutionise a highly fragmented industry and positively impact lives.”
Bookings Africa’s is a company that seeks is to unlock the earning potential of young entrepreneurial Africans and monetise their latent skillset.
Bookings Africa currently offers over 14 talent categories including make-up artists, photographers, DJs, hairstylists, and social media influencers with plans of increasing to over 40 categories and expand to other countries across Africa by December this year.
Since its launch in April 2019, Bookings Africa has signed up over 2,000 freelancers and served clients such as Coca-cola, Anap Jets, May D, Film Factory and The Luxury Lifestyle Market.
