Pan-African digital service provider inq. Holdings announced the conclusion of the 100% acquisition of Vodacom Business Africa’s operations in Nigeria, Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire with a further planned acquisition in Cameroon pending regulatory approvals. 

Geoff Hardwick, CEO of inq, said: "We are launching inq at a time when the need and demand for market leading-edge cloud and digital services and solutions across our markets looks set to explode. We aim to be Africa's number one Artificial Intelligence service provider.”

Domiciled in Mauritius, inq. Holdings (formerly Synergy Communications) is a subsidiary of the Convergence Partners Communications Infrastructure Fund, which is dedicated solely to communications infrastructure and related services and technologies across sub-Saharan Africa. 

inq. provides the following services: Edge AI Solutions, SDN/NFV Solutions, Cloud-based Solutions; and Intelligent Connectivity.

This landmark transaction grows inq.’s regional footprint to 13 cities in seven countries across Africa including its existing operations in Botswana, Malawi and Mozambique.

Under the inq. banner the company will embark on the next phase of building a unified pan-African cloud and digital service provider, bringing to market a very relevant suite of next generation technology solutions in the fields of Edge, Artificial Intelligence, NFV and Cloud.

"Through inq, we are able to deliver intelligent connectivity through seamless delivery of cloud and digital services and digital technologies to our clients. As the global thinking is going through a reset because of COVID-19, inq. is ready to provide business continuity to our global and continental and local clients", said Andile Ngcaba, Executive Chairman of inq.
