At the inaugural eCommerce Awards held in Nairobi on 9 August 2019, iProspect East Africa in partnership with Masoko by Safaricom added yet another award to its growing collection - the E-Commerce Agency of the Year.
The eCommerce Awards was established to recognise and celebrate some of the very best online companies, online retailers, agencies, innovations, products and campaigns the e-commerce industry has to offer.
This award sets iProspect East Africa as a benchmark for the industry and as a top performer in Kenya and beyond.
