Green Visor Capital Furthers Its International Investments

New Payments Solutions and Platforms Are Required to Keep Pace With the Explosive Growth of E-Commerce in Emerging Markets.

Green Visor Capital announces follow-on investments in Flutterwave and Simpl, two emerging payments companies targeting commerce in Africa and India, respectively.

Thanks in part to the near ubiquity of hand-held devices with internet connectivity and the changing consumer preferences across the globe, commerce is increasingly being defined by the online shopping experience, especially on mobile phones. Nowhere is this trend more pronounced than in the emerging markets. What's missing in these markets, however, are integrated processing systems that are offered to merchants and banks, regardless of size, and at affordable rates.

Both Flutterwave and Simpl tackle the issues inhibiting online commerce head on with elegant solutions tailor-made for the idiosyncrasies of commerce in Africa and India. My partners and I are excited to be working with both groups of extraordinary founders.
