Story of KAFQA

The world needs more art & more artists. Kafqa was born out of this belief & our love for the stage. Named after the European author, Franz Kafka and the Kafka Layer - our approach to building Kafqa is a marriage between arts & technology. We would like to claim that the `q` instead of the `k` is because of artistic interpretations. However, if you can guess the reason, you can send me an email on

Our Mission

Our Vision
