Mobility startup, Plentywaka, which is in headquartered Toronto that provides hassle-free shared rides on-demand, is making a significant shift in its business today as it announced that it has changed its name to Treepz.
The name change which is effective as of now presents an opportunity to align the company name with its Pan-African expansion plan. It also better represents the vision of the company which is to build the largest shared mobility platform across Africa.
After recently securing $1.2M in seed funding and acquiring Stabus, one of Ghana’s leading mobility startups, the company is now solely focused on expanding across Africa and harnessing the exciting opportunities in the continent.

As part of the name change, Treepz has released a new company logo. Its core service offerings will remain the same but with new names; Daily Treepz, Travel Treepz, and Corporate Treepz. Its existing mission statement and “black & yellow” brand colors will also be retained for marketing and branding purposes.
“This name change is a result of in-depth discussions with our stakeholders, partners, and staff. After we discovered that the term “WAKA” can mean different things across Africa, which may be completely different from travel or movement, we decided to change the name from ‘Plentywaka’ to ‘Treepz’ which is pronounced as ‘Trips’.The new name boldly states our mission to provide safe, convenient, and comfortable trips across Africa with plans for our expansion to 6 countries in 2 years on the continent.” CEO of Treepz Inc., Onyeka Akumah said
The name Treepz embodies everything that happens on the road, traveling across cities, within cities and it gives a cool vibe to the experience.
