What are the odds that two young Africans could start a company over a cup of coffee and be successful?
In 2001 two young African men from opposite ends of the continent sat across from each other at a dinner table that led to a discussion over a cup of coffee. So intense was the conversation that problem solving models were created on a serviette that would fuel the establishment and growth of a multinational African firm forever changing the payments landscape.
They called the business “Cellulant” paying homage to the growing mobile phone penetration in Africa, but also symbolising the importance of a Cell, the smallest structural and functional unit of life that when combined with other Cells, build a whole being. This is born from Cellulant’s deep belief that it is the power of being connected that enables us to accomplish more, together.
