Our SovTech Story

At SovTech, we believe the future of software lies in the talent, innovation, and creativity found on the African continent. For over a decade, we have been pioneering world-class software development for a global audience. We are the leading custom software development company from Africa that, like any great tech company, was founded in a garage. SovTech has now grown to more than 300 of the best software engineering experts, building world-class platforms for growing businesses across four cities on three continents.

Headquartered in South Africa, our team of highly-skilled engineers, designers and strategists span the continent, tapping into Africa's diversity to fuel a collaborative culture of disruptive thinking and technical excellence. Through a flexible and iterative approach, we create fully customised software systems tailored to each client's unique needs. Our flexible subscription models provide scalable and sustainable access to elite talent and technology.

With a mission to become Earth's leading software company from the world’s fastest growing continent, we build cutting-edge software solutions for forward-thinking companies around the world. Our global clientele turns to us as their long term partner - to leverage the latest technologies like AI, cloud computing, IoT and machine learning to transform their organisations.

Looking ahead, we remain committed to growing Africa's tech ecosystems. Africa is home to the world's youngest population, with over 50% of Africans under the age of 25. Recent estimates indicate there are over 700,000 professional software developers across Africa today. That number is projected to double by 2025. We believe in the future of African tech talent and the impact it will have on scaling global companies.

SovTech is the partner for organisations who want to build world-class software with flexibility that leverages the expertise of Africa's top software engineering talent. We design and develop solutions that empower our clients to digitally transform and thrive globally.
