Papshops is an online platform that enables entrepreneurs to access markets easily by connecting them to local and international consumers.

Unemployment is at an all time high globally. In Kenya unemployment has risen to 39.1 percent, significantly higher than Tanzania (5.2%) and Uganda (4%). Many individuals are taking their futures in their hands, not waiting to be hired. This has triggered a rise in entrepreneurs who are developing amazing products every day, yet these are not readily available in the market due to challenges in accessing distribution channels and reaching a wider audience. Papshops connects these entrepreneurs to popup market spaces with traffic & right targeted audience in different locations, thus enabling them to easily build their brand awareness and increase sells as they engage with customers offline. Papshops also enables entrepreneurs to create their own online shops on the platform so that they can connect to consumers worldwide.
