Thousands of schools, colleges and universities use Snapplify every day to teach, learn, and access educational content. Snapplify is the digital content partner on one of the widest-reaching digital interventions in Africa – a project that delivers technology and e-learning to public schools in South Africa’s Gauteng province.
As a socially-minded company, Snapplify is committed to supporting others and creating sustainable change, globally, through collaboration and innovation. Snapplify runs impact programmes through the Snapplify Foundation, and empowers, inspires, and uplifts teachers via Teacha! (the largest community of teachers in Africa). Snapplify’s technology is also used in other educational products to facilitate collaboration throughout the educational community.
Headquarters and offices
Snapplify originated in South Africa, focusing initially on the South African education and digital content industries.
Since its establishment in 2012, the company has grown and expanded into new markets in Africa and the United States, with offices across South Africa, as well as in Nairobi, London, Amsterdam and New Jersey.
Snapplify is backed by AngelHub Ventures, a venture capital company backed by former First National Bank CEO Michael Jordaan and the Harris family, as well as international investors. In 2019, Snapplify secured $2 million expansion capital from venture capital firm Knife Capital and empowered African investment manager Hlayisani Capital’s Hlayisani Growth Fund.
