We are a human-centered company with an emphasis on product quality, intimacy with our customers, and ensuring our people can achieve their best.
We are currently focused on building technology to enable;
Identity: Human identification and verification.
Problem: Currently only 20% of our society’s population has a national identity and no robust infrastructure for human identification/verification for businesses.
Objective: To enable the enrolment of 50million Nigerians into the National identity system and to build an identification infrastructure that can enable businesses to serve and reach more customers digitally.
Payments: Access to modern financial services for Everyone through their mobile phone. (www.eyowo.com)
Problem: Only 40m Nigerians are currently banked while about 120m unique Nigerians have a mobile phone. 65% of financial transactions are done by cash.
Objective: Unlocking access to financial services for anyone with a mobile phone.
Learning: Knowledge to improve society’s human capital.
13m kids are out of school and there's a huge shortage of skilled labour.
Data: Smarter decisions with Data.
Problem: The current approach to data collection is tedious and tasking. Organizations still struggle with the use of paper forms in collecting data and the inability to expand data collection to inaccessible areas.
Objective: To enable seamless data collection and analysis of Data to generate insight for decision making.
Each focus area is a product and functions as a Division or standalone company in tackling the problem.
An internal service division also exists to serve enterprise customers in our areas of focus.
Our ultimate goal is to build a company that will continuously innovate and build technology for connecting people to the value that will transform their lives and businesses
