Business Spotlight by MichaelAmos(m): 12:06pm On Oct 02, 2021
I will be shining the spotlight on successful businesses and also highlighting how they did it

Today, the spotlight is on Flutterwave, an African based fintech company that provides a payment infrastructure for global merchants and payment service providers across the continent

Flutterwave was founded in 2016 by a team of ex-bankers, entrepreneurs and engineers. The platform decided to provide the awardy winning technology core needed to provide businesses all around the world a powerful, reliable and intelligent payments gateway. Flutterwave is headquartered in San Francisco, California with operations in Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa and seven other African countries

Flutterwave has grown to become one of the fastest growing payments companies in the world. Since inception Flutterwave has processed close to $2 billion in payments and 25 million transactions across over 33 African countries where it currently operates. In 2017 Flutterwave was named Africa’s best fintech company at the Apps Africa Innovation Awards

In 2021, Flutterwave raised a US$170 million Series C funding round. At the time, this was the largest amount ever secured by an African tech startup and gave it a valuation of over US$1 billion making Flutterwave a unicorn. Investors in Flutterwave include YCombinator, Visa Ventures, Mastercard, Avenir Growth Capital and Tiger Global Management. Flutterwave's goal is to make it easier for Africans to build global businesses that can make and accept any payment, anywhere from across Africa and around the world

Cheers to more success Flutterwave
