Feb 14, 2023

GetFundedAfrica, one of Africa’s leading tech-based marketplaces for founders, angel investors and venture capitalists, has partnered with uqudo, one of EMEA’s most innovative digital identity companies, to promote digital identity and technological advancement on the African continent.

GetFundedAfrica connects African founders with global mentors, coaches, corporates, investors, and governments. Its community boasts 2,500+ start-ups and 50, 000 SMEs across the African continent. Uqudo has had a long heritage of delivering projects for governments, regulators and enterprise customers, and has spent the last few years working closely with startups and high-growth companies to deliver best-of-breed onboarding and eKYC technology that drives scale, operational efficiency and regulatory compliance. Its mission is to bring trust and transparency to an increasingly digital world by building an identity layer.

The agreement will see uqudo support GetFundedAfrica’s vast community network with its digital identity platform. Thus, translating into a stronger value of GetFundedAfrica’s tech platform and contributing to the expansion of its marketplace. 

On its part, GetFundedAfrica will play a key role in assisting uqudo to connect with start-ups, partners, and associates towards building a digital identity for all of Africa.

Uqudo will provide comprehensive digital onboarding for all startups who need support on the GFA platform. With rapid digitization and penetration of smartphones across Africa, comprehensive digital onboarding has become a fundamental requirement for startups to efficiently scale. With fraud and identity theft on the rise, startups on the GFA platform will be able to work with a leader in ID&V that can support their growth journeys, both locally and abroad, whilst protecting them from market risks.

Both companies will harness individual strengths and expertise to achieve a collaborative, far-reaching goal.
