Prepares launch of SPENN platform in Uganda
Expanding its African footprint, SPENN Technology A/S has decided to enter a new African market: Uganda.
Company Annoucement No. 68
“Uganda is a huge, mature market. The cost of financial services is high, which presents an opportunity for SPENN to offer more affordable solutions based on blockchain technology,” says Jens Glaso, CEO of SPENN Technology A/S.
SPENN has agreed upon the terms with an undisclosed partner bank in Uganda. The final signing of the agreement is subject to approval by the Supervisory Financial Authorities in Uganda.
“Mobile money is multimillion-dollar industry in Uganda. SPENN has the technology and the presence to be able to capture a sizeable slice of this market,” says Glaso.
In a country of 46 million people, there are more than 30 million registered users of mobile payment systems. The population is largely unbanked, but financially mature in terms of uptake of financial technology. However, mobile money (MoMo) in Uganda has experienced a setback, as the government has added taxes to these “MoMos”.
“SPENN stands to benefit from this. SPENN is a bank product and thus will not trigger taxes for end users. This could become a huge driver for people to embrace SPENN. We are very excited about offering our services to the Ugandan people,” says Glaso.
