Our Management Team
We are a team of friends and former colleagues who have joined together to create a product that we believe will fundamentally change the way people bank in the foreseeable future. But more importantly, it will provide a practical, no cost solution that will finally allow the unbanked to participate in the global economy.
Our Management is supported by a team of highly skilled technicians in various disciplines. Our Advisory Board is comprised of business leaders from various market segments; space does not permit including each member’s bio, however, without these dedicated colleagues we would not have been able to build this ground-breaking platform.
