Positive stories of innovation in
business, industry and the STEM fields in Africa

Welcome to WiredUp.


We are a publishing platform for extraordinary stories about African changemakers, ground-breakers and torch-bearers. We highlight the accomplishments of leaders in industry, STEM and innovation.


Their stories are the backbone of Africa’s narrative- its challenges at a local and global level, its homegrown solutions, and the impact of the continent’s remarkable development.

About Us

We are conscious of the fact that Africa, like all continents, faces issues such as disease, poverty, corruption and underdevelopment. This facet of our continent has been exhaustively captured and shared by mainstream media across the world.


The good news is, Africa has risen beyond “potential”. Therefore, our narrative must be expanded.

Its reality not only speaks of a continent that births great musicians and sports stars; African scientists, engineers, tech experts, mathematicians, business and industry leaders, and innovators in various fields are leapfrogging solutions to global issues.


WiredUp’s mission is to tell their extraordinary stories.

Proudly African

We are unapologetic about showing the positive aspects of our beautiful continent. We actively promote African stories of success and triumph despite the odds. We are committed to balancing the narrative scales.

Our Impact

Africans celebrating their own accomplishments and a truer narrative for a complex continent.
