We’ve been through a lot to get here. But this is only the beginning and our future looks promising.

Brief History

Grenade was founded in the year 2012 in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the time, we developed and implemented web and mobile solutions for publishers and medium-to-large companies across Africa. While we still continue to provide services to companies of various sizes, much has changed since our humble beginnings.

Over the years, we have built a number of digital products in our spare time that we have tried to sell online. Most of them have failed. However, our flagship product called FooEvents has altered that trajectory and, in a very short space of time, has grown into a full event management product suite comprising of six extensions and three mobile apps that are used by thousands of businesses around the globe (and possibly in space). We’re hoping to replicate this success with our recently launched point of sale solution called FooSales.

Due to the global nature of our products and our pioneering company culture, Grenade has become a distributed business with small teams in South Africa, U.S. and Canada.


We aim to become a next-level eCommerce solutions provider, empowering other businesses and entrepreneurs in the process.


Skills, hard work and a hustle mentality. These values are intrinsic to all our team members and is the foundation that Grenade is built on.


It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be. So let’s wake up, kick ass and repeat.
