Ghanaian startup, Dropifi was recently selected to be part of the latest batch of 500 Startups backed companies. Dropifi is an intelligent replacement for mail-tos and contact forms that aims to make customer support more effective, increase lead generation and generate valuable business insights.
The startup notably acquired about 5,000 users in over 29 countries in less than 6 months without any marketing.
Dropifi is the first company founded by an entirely African team to make it into the program. It was also incubated at Ghana’s Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST).
Dropifi was a winner of the first Startup Weekend Accra competition and has been featured by Forbes as a top startup in Africa.
