Our Journey

Seedling to Baobab tree

Baotree was once only an idea in Dimitri's head and with support from the Loisaba team, they manually tested the idea in Kenya circa 2019. From these humble beginnings, Baotree was incorporated in 2020 with three co-founders and a couple test partners to venture into the world of test the V1 of our software. It's been an incredible journey and we won't stop!
