Founded in 2010, Kopo Kopo’s technology platform now powers the largest independent merchant network in the mobile money industry, serving thousands of merchants throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
Dylan Higgins, CEO of Kopo Kopo, said: “We spent years fine-tuning every step and pixel of the merchant journey and have gained unparalleled insights along the way. For example, what business application leads to a 28% increase in transactions within 3 months, and what suite of applications lead to a 10x increase in revenue?”
Kopo Kopo will be presenting on two panels:
- Scaling Mobile Enabled Businesses. Monday March 2nd from 14:00 to 15:10 in GSMA Seminar Theatre CC1.1. Dylan Higgins, CEO.
- Mobile Money in Emerging Markets: From Domestic Remittances to Ubiquitous Payment System. Thursday March 5th from 14:30 to 16:00 in Hall 4, Auditorium 3. Ben Lyon, Vice President of Marketing.
Kopo Kopo will also be demoing its merchant-facing Android application in the Connected City from March 2nd – March 5th.
Higgins continued: “We’re seeing a groundswell of interest in merchant payments across the mobile money industry, but payments alone are not the long-term answer. We envision a world in which merchants manage their businesses from a single screen, whether engaging customers, paying suppliers, or accessing loan facilities.
“That’s what the arc of the industry is curving toward – and 2015 will be a transformative year.”
