It is no longer news that Nigerian tech startups are attracting foreign investors.
Their ingenuity in the ICT space on the African continent has opened up prospects for e-Commerce and e-Payment systems like never before.
One of such leading tech startups is Flutterwave, a fintech that provides payment infrastructure for global merchants and payment service providers across the African continent.
Founded in 2016 by Iyinoluwa Aboyeji and Olugbenga Agboola, early this year Flutterwave raised $170 million through a 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 $1 billion, making the company a unicorn.
In business parlance, a unicorn is a privately held startup company valued at over $1 billion.
To give some insight on how the company intends to provide the fastest and seamless payments solutions across the African continent, the duo of Olugbenga Agboola and Oluwabankole Falade, respectively the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Regulatory Officer of Flutterwave joined ARISE News on Friday.
