ukowapi was founded in Darmstadt, Germany in 2015. ‚ukowapi’ is Swahili and means ‚where are you?’
As the name suggests, we’re basically a mobile solutions startup that specializes in location-based services. Our core service is providing reliable and verifiable digital addresses as an alternative to underdeveloped physical address systems.
Our vision is to completely revolutionize address systems in the developing world, thus transforming the way people do business. We believe that if you change the way a person interacts with his world, you in fact change that person’s world. This will give rise to a safer, more connected and more accessible world.
ukowapi aims to ‚make indivuals reachable’ by providing reliable and verifiable digital addresses. In the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2014, ukowapi received the Galileo Masters Award for winning 1st Place in Hesse, Germany and 2nd Place overall.
