“O” Adeyemi: Global Partnerships & Expansion, Flutterwave – Beyond Payment Technology
“O” Adeyemi is Head of Global Partnerships & Expansion at Flutterwave, a Fintech company founded in 2016 and focused on making it easier to transact and do business across Africa – users are able to make international payments in their local currencies.
The value of strategic partnerships has fueled Flutterwave’s growth and success. Most recently in 2020 they raised a $35 million Series B round and announced a partnership with Worldpay FIS for payments in Africa. COVID-19 accelerated their expansion into the e-commerce space with the launch of Flutterwave Stores.
Flutterwave’s African Business Story is about leveraging partnerships, understanding opportunities and pivoting appropriately. It is clearly a standout in Africa’s digital-finance landscape.
