Having established its presence in the eCommerce space in Kenya, Kenyan eCommerce startup, Copia Global, has announced its expansion into Uganda.
Copia Global was founded by Tracey Turner. The startup’s unique platform uses agents to carry out commercial activities. Customers intending to make purchases visit an agent with a digital device to place their order and notify Copia Global, who processes and delivers it within two days when the customer returns to pick it up. This process enables the startup to serve people who do not own digital devices or cannot access the Internet.
Tracey Turner the founder and chairman of Copia Global speaking on the startup said that it is designed for high growth and middle-income population like Uganda’s.
“Uganda has one of the fastest-growing middle classes in the world with a hardworking population and a dynamic entrepreneurial culture. Copia is designed specifically to serve this high growth but underserved consumer base who want access to high-quality products at the best prices” said Tracey.
