The one-stop shop powering small businesses with ambitions to grow

Oze believes that small businesses are the future of Africa. But, building the future is hard. To borrow the old African Proverb, “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far, go with Oze.” 😎

We built the last business app you’ll ever need. From keeping good financial records to receiving payments and getting a loan, Oze brings business success within reach.

Together, with small business owners, banks, and other fintechs, we can create the future we all want to live in.

Our Values

We wake up every morning thinking how might we help small businesses grow and doing our best to live these values.

Small businesses
Small Businesses are the lifeblood of the African economy. The people who own and run them should be admired; they took a leap of faith to create something new for their family, their community, and their country.
Small businesses
We have a sacred task at Oze…we are the custodians of our customer’s business data. Not only must we keep it free from hacks and attacks but we need to always act in the best interest of our SMEs.
Some products just need to work and Oze is one of them. Every feature of the app is simple, intuitive, and powerful.
When you are trying to change a system, you can’t do it alone. Our customers (big and small) are an extension of our team, working together to build a future where every small business has a chance to succeed.
We are deeply curious people asking questions to constantly learn how Oze can help businesses grow. Micro businesses become small, small businesses become big, and Oze becomes the leading platform for entrepreneurs across Africa.
Oze is built for business owners, by business owners.

Built together with business owners

We pride ourselves on not building for our customers, but with them. Our co-creation workshops are the fuel to our rocketship. 🚀

Join the small business revolution.

Come help us reach new heights while working with sharp, fun colleagues who care about your professional growth.
