Flutterwave’s Transformative Partnerships and Prestigious Global Recognition

Flutterwave, the leading African fintech company, has been making waves in the global payments landscape, not only through its innovative solutions but also through the strategic partnerships it has forged. These collaborations have not only expanded Flutterwave’s reach and capabilities but have also earned the company prestigious recognition on the international stage.

One of Flutterwave’s most significant partnerships is its collaboration with Acquired.com, a leading payment processing platform. This alliance has enabled Flutterwave to enhance the customer experience for its flagship remittance product, Send App. By leveraging Acquired.com’s expertise, Flutterwave has been able to offer faster and more secure outward remittance transactions for UK and EU cardholders sending money to their business partners or loved ones in Africa.

Mark Johnson, the Commercial Director at Acquired.com, commented on the partnership, stating, “We have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Flutterwave, tailoring our solution to meet the specific needs and address the challenges of the most trusted payments infrastructure providers on the African continent. Our customised analysis and recommendations have helped Flutterwave build on its success rates, increase collections, and enhance the customer experience – which is at the core of our service.”

In addition to its partnership with Acquired.com, Flutterwave has also forged a strategic technology alliance with Microsoft. This collaboration will see Flutterwave leverage the power of Microsoft Azure to drive innovation, empower small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and accelerate financial inclusion in Africa.

Through this partnership, Flutterwave will be able to process high-volume payments at scale, ensuring a seamless and secure payment experience for its clients. Moreover, the integration with Azure Marketplace will enable Flutterwave to launch its SMB finance-as-a-service offering, directly addressing the needs of small businesses across the continent.

Lillian Barnard, the President of Microsoft Africa, expressed the company’s commitment to this partnership, stating, “Microsoft is committed to fast-tracking economic growth in Africa through the transformative power of technology – a key part of this involves making it possible for SMEs to acquire the digital financial tools and services they need to succeed.”

Flutterwave’s strategic partnerships have not only enhanced its capabilities but have also earned the company global recognition. In 2024, the company was named the No. 1 Most Innovative Company in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region by the prestigious publication Fast Company.

Olugbenga ‘GB’ Agboola, the Founder and CEO of Flutterwave, expressed his pride in this achievement, stating, “Innovation is an integral part of our core values, which we continue to adopt across all parts of our business. Every day, we come to work, and we live and breathe innovation. We’ve since built out Africa’s biggest payment network by reach, created solutions that make payments solutions, currency exchanges, e-commerce, and remittances easier for global companies selling in Africa, local businesses and Africans alike.”

This recognition not only solidifies Flutterwave’s position as a true innovator in the fintech sector but also serves as a testament to the company’s unwavering commitment to driving progress and empowering businesses across the African continent. As Flutterwave continues to forge strategic alliances and expand its reach, the company is poised to redefine the future of digital payments, both in Africa and on a global scale.
