Our mission

Okazi will increase productivity and drive growth for millions of SMEs across emerging markets.

Small businesses account for 42% of GDP and 61% of jobs in South Africa. But they have high labor sensitivity to demand. They hire when demand surges and fire when it wanes.

Okazi will help millions of people keep their jobs rather than be laid off by connecting underutilized staff to businesses who need extra help.
