Academix 30 million research materials at the tip of your fingers

Academix

Academix

Academix is an Africa-focused e-library that gives access to over 30 million multi-disciplinary research materials. It features e-Books, journals, research papers, reports, magazine articles and encyclopedic resources.

Most of Africa’s knowledge resources are inaccessible online hence there is often insufficient knowledge to support product/policy developers as well as investors’ decisions. Academix is bridging this gap by partnering with research institutions to provide online access to a rich collection of high quality knowledge resources.
Academix is executing a strategy offering subscription to 330,000 research students and lecturers in order to generate annual revenue in excess of $5.7m.
We are currently seeking equity investors to help make this a reality.
