Offering insight into Fundamo

Hannes van Rensburg, CEO and Founder of Fundamo was recently in London and took some time out to speak to PaymentEye.

Hannes has led the company since it was founded in 2000. With Hannes at the helm, Fundamo launched the world’s first mobile financial services deployment in 2002 with Celpay in Zambia. Following the acquisition of Fundamo by Visa in 2011, Hannes is now responsible for Visa’s efforts to drive financial inclusion in emerging markets, as well as continuing to lead Fundamo as CEO.

In part 1 Hannes speaks about the establishment of Fundamo and its focus in emerging markets since being acquired by Visa.

“After the acquisition, there was a shift in focus from platform to interoperability. It has involved understanding how we can use the Fundamo assets to leverage our closed loop platform systems to an open loop solution. This has been our biggest challenge.” Said Hannes.
