UGABS.com is a technology, e-commerce and retail company that provides a platform for consumer-to-consumer, business-to-business and business-to-consumer to sale products and services through the UGABS website. The web portals are design to help start-up companies position themselves to become market leaders in offering online merchants and consumers with valuable African products/services. UGABS offers a solution to Africans in the diaspora and other cultures who do not have access to African products and merchandizes from their home country. It also offers a solution to local African entrepreneurs who are looking to bring their products to the global market. The company utilizes a consolidation approach in bringing all African products that allows online consumers to instantly have access while offering consumers a convenient, centralized online location to make purchases. The African market is diverse yet unreachable due to poor infrastructure that makes it almost impossible for African made products to enter the global markets and be recognized.
