Where all the magic happens: Inside Flutterwave’s innovative office space

by | Oct 30, 2018

In 2016, Iyin Aboyeyi left Andela to focus on building Flutterwave, a payments platform that allows merchants make and receive payments across multiple platforms. In the past two years, the company has grown to become one of Africa’s biggest payments technology companies.

Amidst recent developments in the company — conclusion of its Series A funding round, the stepping down of Iyin as CEO and appointment of former CTO Olugbenga Agboola as the new CEO — we took a tour of the Flutterwave office space.

“Here, the Flutterwave team holds town hall meetings, stand up sessions, company-wide meetings and group photo sessions,” says Modupe.

The area also doubles as an additional work space away from the regular work area.
