About SafeBoda

SafeBoda's mission is to empower communities to thrive. We believe that everyone in African cities should have access to affordable services at a click of a button. We are a venture-backed start-up, currently based in Uganda and Nigeria, and we aim to become Africa's super app.

Our Drivers Community
Our community of SafeBoda drivers receive extensive training to make them the safest and most professional drivers on the streets. When drivers join the SafeBoda community, they see a significant increase in their business, providing impact to themselves, their family and the wider community
Our Values
We started as a small community of boda drivers and we never forget this. We share lunch together, and we care about our community of staff, drivers, entrepreneurs and customers.
We challenge the status quo and believe that positive change is possible. We bring solutions that constantly require us to think out of the box.

We are open minded in what we do. We have candour and share our experiences openly, without fear of judgement. We love feedback on our product and our own personal performance, so that we can improve everyday.
If we don’t care about safety ourselves, then how can we change our industry for the better?

We expect customers to trust our drivers and entrepreneurs, so we need to trust one another in everything we do.

We hold ourselves to the highest standard, and we are accountable for our actions. We deliver what we say we will deliver.

Collective Commitment
Teams and entrepreneurs are allowed to disagree while a decision is being made. However, once a decision has been made, everybody must commit to it. “I agree and I commit, I disagree and I commit”.
Who is Backing Us
We are a venture funded company, including backers such as Go-Ventures (GoJek), Allianz X and Unbound, that is already having a huge impact on millions of people in East and West Africa.
