Two weeks ago I saw the news story “Stripe acquires Nigeria’s Paystack for $200 million”. So I immediately contacted the founder of the company to do an interview.
And he said, “Come on, man. Let’s do it, but give me a little bit of time.” And so we waited a couple of weeks and true to his word he showed up to talk about it.
Joining me Shola Akinlade, the founder of Paystack. It’s a startup out of Nigeria that like Stripe provides quick ways to integrate payment services into online and offline transactions. We’re going to find out how he built this company, how he sold it, and why he’s even sitting here doing this interview with me.
Shola Akinlade is the founder of Paystack, a payments platform for Africa.
