African Innovation Shines: Nigerian Startup GIFTY AI Claims Top Prize at World’s Largest Tech Event

GIFTY AI, a Nigerian startup that provides an AI-powered sales growth assistant for e-commerce businesses, has won the top prize in the Super Nova Challenge by North Star at GITEX 2023, the world’s largest tech event.

The company’s victory is a significant achievement for both Africa and the global tech community, and it puts Africa on the map as a hub for innovation and entrepreneurship.

GIFTY AI’s sales growth assistant helps e-commerce businesses to automate their marketing and sales activities so they can focus on growing their business.

The solution is especially beneficial for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), which often lack the resources to invest in traditional marketing and sales teams.

“Representing Africa in the Middle East was a tough one for me,” said Victor D. Akpan, CEO of GIFTY AI. “But I guess I followed my star from Africa to Expand North Star, Dubai.”

“We are building gifty.com.ng to let the world know that Africa is taking over!”
