On Wednesday 28th February, the iHub will host Truecaller’s first meetup in Nairobi.
Over the past two years, Truecaller has become one of the fastest growing apps in Africa, and has consistently been topping the App Store Charts across the continent. After months of scouting for location and talent, Truecaller has decided to open an office in Nairobi Kenya.
The Truecaller app, which allows people to see who’s calling and filter out spam calls and SMS, already has more than 50 million users in Africa. The service is identifying more than half a billion calls on a monthly basis in the region, and 50 percent of all SMSes users receive are considered as spam.
Join us for an exclusive gathering of storytelling, next steps and exciting expansion plans for Africa presented by Truecaller’s newly appointed Director of Partnerships, Africa, Zakaria Abdulkadir Hersi who will be overseeing its expansion in the Sub-Sahara region.
The Truecaller team will share how they have grown to over 50 million users in Africa in a few short years, how they are making communication much more safeand efficient, their plans on introducing news services to the market, and engaging with local African startups, and how Africa, and especially Kenya will play a key role in their growth going forward.
