I was scrolling through Twitter and saw a few tweets about a yet-to-be-launched product we’d been building. Our Social Media Team had created an account for it and some well meaning folks reshared the screenshot on Twitter and got some responses. A few of the comments showed that people were looking forward to the product as they believed it was going to lay a new foundation for education financing in Africa. That is what we live for at Flutterwave–to build solutions that create real impact.

Before I founded Flutterwave I worked in different companies and countries, including in South Africa. During one of my stints, I came to learn of a few big South African companies that had expanded to Nigeria and other African countries, but couldn't figure out how to pay their staff easily.
