To enrich the lives of one billion unbanked people by
seamlessly integrating them into the global financial system.
DigiCash Technology Venture does not compete directly with banks and supports the mission of most NGOs and financial inclusion providers. This includes being encouraged and regulated by Banco Central do Brasil for that market. DigiCash Technology Venture instead eliminates the need for the unbanked to use banks. These are typically customers that banks do not want because most financial institutions cannot serve them profitably. DigiCash Technology Venture is designed to equal or better the best attributes of existing payment models.
There are an estimated two billion adults globally who have no bank account.
These individuals have no means to cost effectively send, receive or save
cash. They are excluded from the benefits of the global financial system.
Financial inclusion is critical in reducing poverty, improving health outcomes and achieving inclusive economic growth. Moving from cash to digital payments provides an important first entry point into the formal financial system. Such participation in the financial system better enables individuals to start and expand business, invest in education, manage risk and absorb financial shocks.
DigiCash Technology Venture is seeking partnerships with forward-thinking financial institutions that have a focus on financial inclusion. If you have an interest in partnering with DigiCash Technology Venture, please reach out to us at [email protected].
DigiCash Technology Venture is currently looking for a handful of extremely talented individuals in its Sao Paulo office. If you are passionate about harnessing the world’s leading technologies to make a lasting difference in the lives of others, get in touch at [email protected]!
