Hello, my name is Shola Akinlade, and I’m CEO of Paystack, a payments company that helps African merchants accept payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
On 11th November 2015, Paystack became the first Nigerian company to be invited to join the Y Combinator Accelerator program. The experience quite literally changed my life, opening doors and making it possible for my tiny team and I to have a shot at making payments in Nigeria a little better.
The deadline for applications to the Y Combinator Winter 2018 funding cycle is 8 pm PT on October 3rd. I’d like to encourage you and your team to consider applying to YC.
