WHAT IS

SCALE?

We’re Africa’s First Fintech Agency. Why Agency? Because it takes an entire ecosystem to get payment products live in a very complex African landscape. We’re, however, the single point of contact, entry, deployment & growth.

The best part? We’re African & female, building for Africa, and the lives of it’s people.

We’re the Ultimate Payments Plug.

If you’re looking for experts in the non-bank payment vertical to support your Go-To-Market, expansion and growth strategy, then your needs align with Scale’s purpose.

Whether it is for partnership strategies, navigating the local context of the African market, defining your fit-for-purpose-market-consumer- commercials-product pricing, selecting, assessing and negotiating partnership agreements, solution rollout, finding a bank BIN sponsor. Or, if you simply need a single end-to-end tech stack that issues a Visa or MasterCard, comes BIN sponsor ready with a quick rollout.

We’re the team that supports you.
