What we are doing
Mono is building the critical layer for Africa, across data and payment using open banking. Our easy-to-use API enables developers to connect with their end users’ financial accounts to retrieve account details, transactions, and move money in a manner that is reliable, performant, and fair than anything else available.

Mono is well-funded and backed by some of the best VCs in the world, including Entree capital (Investors in Stripe, Kuda, etc) and Y-combinator.

In Africa, open banking doesn’t exit but banks do have real APIs used in their product, so in order to access these APIs, we reverse engineer the bank’s apps and build “open banking” on top of it.
