Top 3 Most Innovative African Companies of 2019 – FastCompany

When we started out, we wanted to build a payment infrastructure for Africans to be able to pay people and get paid from anywhere in the world. We knew we wanted to get it done, we had an idea of how and we got to it, only that, we didn’t know we’d get to build a mission bigger than us. A mission that keeps us up all night and keeps a bright smile on the faces of the people who come in contact with us. It’s not been an easy ride and it wasn’t promised to be one but someone has had to do it, you’re welcome.
It’s been 3 years of the journey so far, and although we have had our ups and downs, we cannot over-emphasise how rewarding it’s been to be able to connect Africa and Africans through payments.
Last year, we made it to number 9 of FastCompany’s Most Innovative Companies in Africa.
We’re very proud to say that this year, we’re the second Most Innovative African Company on the list – the year is already off to a wonderful start!
This speaks to our progress, drive and dedication to innovation as a company, but more importantly, it speaks to the amazing people at Flutterwave who work tirelessly to drive the vision forward.
Flutterwave is nothing without her people – the staff, txhe merchants who continue to believe in us and their customers.
Thank you for believing in us, and thank you for making us one of Africa’s most innovative companies.
Let’s do more!
