MetaMap has set on a journey to unlock borderless growth in East Africa as it launched its East African presence in a breakfast summit in Nairobi, Kenya.
The San Fransico based company has been helping over 400 companies around the world to scale its businesses across borders. The company is focused on trusted identity verification solutions and building trust across borders.
According to the company’s Chief Executive Officer for Africa, Ogochukwu Onwuzurike, MetaMap saw that the opportunity of growth in Africa is limitless and they are here to help Africans recognize their merits across borders.
“If there’s a mission that we have in the world, something that we are obsessed about, it is allowing people to be recognized for their merits. As Africans, there are a lot of merits that we have as individuals but these are not recognized by our traditional institutions and data sets. We believe that every single African has a merit,” Ogochukwu said at the MetaMap breakfast summit.
MetaMap aims to help scale local companies and businesses from one region of the continent to another. It has a goal to position the growth that we are seeing in the continent across all the regions of Africa and see that companies are all connected across the continent and beyond.
“We are truly obsessed with borderless growth and helping companies scale across Africa. We are obsessed with having more Africans be recognized in the diaspora, be able to find work and get access to the rest of the world,” Ogochukwu added.
MetaMap’s Global Director Strategy and crypto & borderless enthusiast, Pierre-Antoine Rohr-Lacoste, was also present to witness the East African launch of borderless growth. He spoke about the international perspective on borderless growth using trust data.
“It is important to build that online trust that will help you get the services you need to grow and that’s what our identity verification solutions are all about. We want to help people get what they merit for,” Pierre said reiterating Ogochukwu’s statement.
“Realistically, if we can over services that help people get access to services that previously they couldn’t get access to, I think that’s a win,” he added.
