Yango Makes a Splash with Second Appearance at the Africa CEO Forum, Advancing as the Leading Ride-Service in Africa by Reach.

In its sixth year on the continent, Yango pushes forward with its mission to revolutionize daily tech services with top ride-hailing and delivery solutions.

At the CEO AFRICA Forum held in Kigali on May 16-17, 2024, tech powerhouse Yango underlined its dedication to Africa’s progress. Leaders and thinkers in tech and policy came together to chat about how technology is changing cities across Africa.

Since setting foot in Africa, Yango has soared, now running services in over 13 countries and becoming a go-to for budget-friendly, reliable rides and deliveries.

From its first ride service launched in Ivory Coast in 2018, Yango has spread to include many African nations in its network, with nearly a million drivers and couriers making a living through its platform. In 2023, Yango’s ride count more than doubled from the year before, marking over 250 million trips since its start.

Yango isn’t just about giving rides. It’s about helping local business growth by teaming up with over 1720 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Africa.
