On Friday, 30th April 2021, leading stakeholders from Nigeria’s banking and payments industry gathered in Lekki, Lagos, as AppZone Group, the leading fintech company in Sub Saharan Africa, launched its ultra-modern headquarters. The launch of the new AppZone office follows a decade of stealth operations, as the company has diligently congregated some of Africa’s best and brightest talents to build the de facto operating system for the continent’s banking and financial services industry.

The launch of the new headquarters exemplifies AppZone’s understanding of the need to ensure that home-grown talents are genuinely empowered and valued. The contemporary space, which sits on two floors with sprawling views of the upscale Admiralty Way, boasts features and facilities that rival the best tech offices found anywhere else around the world.

With the launch of the new office space, AppZone’s talent, which includes over 170 highly skilled individuals, will continue working towards achieving the organization’s bold and ambitious goals to digitize and fully automate the banking and payments industries across Africa.

The launch of AppZone new headquarters follows the successful Series A funding round, which saw the company raise 10 million dollars- to hire more premium talent and build more technology and scale operations across the continent. It’s also in furtherance of AppZone’s belief in maximizing local talent by rewarding and creating wealth whilst building and managing Africa’s singular Financial Operating System.
