In 2009 he spoke at TEDGlobal about his company Appfrica and one of its projects that connected rural Ugandan villages with the Internet. The service, in collaboration with nonprofit OpenMind, was called QuestionBox and allowed people to ask questions and get timely, vetted answers from human operators.

Appfrica is an active mentoring group and investor for software developers in Africa and works with multi-national firms that wish to do work there.
