Our Story

Peprosys is a Venture Builder that was started in 2020 as a university side project. Sahil was doing an MBA at the University of Cape Town when a number of fellow students were seeking help with building out tech solutions. They were non-technical founders looking to build products in a fast, affordable and scalable way. Having done a Computer Science masters, Sahil had unique access to world class software developers. And so Peprosys was born.
Peprosys now operates in 6 African countries with a team of over 30 people, providing tech development services for startups. They help build new startups and assist those who have issues with their current development partner.

Solution to Tech Problems:

Tech problems are typically caused by:
  • 1. An inexperienced inhouse team building something that isn't scalable
  • 2. An outsourced team that is not aligned with the long term goals of the startup. They are simply looking for their next project, resulting in delays and shortcuts being taken.

Peprosys offers solutions to both of these problems:
  • We align ourselves to the startup by doing work on a part-cash and part-risk basis. This way we make our returns on the long term success of the startup.
  • We open up our extensive network of VC, Angel and institutional investors to our portfolio startups to increase their chance and speed of raising funds.

We offer various services to startups, including affordable and fast technology deployment, growth marketing, funding partners, free mentorship, and guidance on building scalable and sustainable businesses to become top brands in African entrepreneurship.
