Flippy Campus Launches Marketplace to Help Ghanaian University Students Buy and Sell from Each Other
Flippy Campus, the social app for Ghanaian tertiary schools that promises to give the ultimate campus experience, has just launched a marketplace on its Android and web app buy and sell new and used products easily.
David Mumuni, CEO of Flippy Campus, had this to say: “The Flippy Marketplace is in line with our efforts to create the ultimate campus experience for our users. It is an idea we have been cooking up for almost a year now and we are happy to roll it out to allow students and student-focused brands and services to reach the thousands of students actively engaged on Flippy Campus. In future, we hope to have a dedicated section within the marketplace for specific brands to relate directly with the students.”
Flippy Campus has recently formed a number of strategic partnerships to improve the marketplace experience for its student users, InterPay (the payment solution), Campus Base TV (the number one campus TV targeted towards students), Samsung and Tisu (the ecommerce platform dedicated towards giving great deals on products.)
“Buying and selling on campus is a part of student culture and we have noticed a lot of this activity in the feeds of our users. So we decided to give them a dedicated section on the app to sell to their flip buddies and make some extra income while using Flippy Campus.” - Ammishaddai Ofori, Head of Content & PR
Flippy Campus, boasts of a userbase of over 100,000 students and recently launched on five (5) new campuses including Central University, Methodist University, University of Professional Studies Accra, Takoradi Technical University and the Kumasi Technical University.
The company is looking forward to expanding to all tertiary institutions in the country by 2017, and move on to take over Lagos, in Nigeria.
Students, businesses and services looking to sell directly to students can do so by downloading the Flippy Campus app on the playstore or using the web app.
Brands interested in partnerships to reach large numbers of students in Ghana can also contact the team via firstname.lastname@example.org

Due to COVID-19, MEST postpones training program to next year and doubles down on growing portfolio companies
At MEST, we continue to be deeply concerned about COVID-19 and have been closely monitoring developments locally and globally. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our community and we will continue to follow local authority and health official guidelines.
Due to the ongoing nature of the pandemic and the uncertainty that the future of travel holds, we have been unable to conduct in-person interviews and host recruitment around Africa for our next cohort. For this reason, we have taken the decision to postpone the Training Program to next year.
While these circumstances are indeed unfortunate, we see this as an exciting opportunity at MEST to double down on providing support and mentorship to our existing portfolio companies and the African ecosystem.
