Stitch is an API infrastructure company. We enable simple, easy access to user financial accounts.
Our mission is to make it easier for businesses across Africa to build, optimise and scale financial solutions.
The best partner for Africa’s fintech and embedded finance businesses
Everyday, we see more innovative tech businesses launching across Africa. We couldn’t be more excited about their potential to improve access and financial health across the continent. At Stitch, our goal is to make it easier for the teams building these solutions to start, optimise, and scale their businesses.
As former fintech founders ourselves, we witnessed firsthand how difficult it is to build the bespoke integrations and stacks necessary to successfully launch a financial product – especially when they aren’t part of the core offering. With that in mind, we launched Stitch in South Africa in early 2021, and expanded to Nigeria in October 2021.
Through our API, businesses in Africa can more easily access their customers’ bank accounts to verify identity, view transaction and balance data, enable instant, fraud-free bank payments and more.
Our goal is to build the infrastructure and core functionality for the financial graph
The financial graph refers to a connected network of financial capabilities that interoperates across regions, providers, banks, and other types of financial accounts. With access to the graph, businesses can write code once to build their foundation, and easily launch new products or expand into multiple markets without needing to rebuild the infrastructure from scratch.
Today, we’re working with key partners in each market to build the tapestry of the future money movement.
We believe that if we get this right, it could unlock enormous opportunities for fintech innovators and act as a catalyst for economic acceleration in traditionally fragmented markets.
Our team has deep experience in the fintech sector in Africa, and we’re growing every day.
