We chatted with Ham Serunjogi and Maijid Moujaled, co-founders of Chipper Cash. Together, they’ve created the first platform to support cross-border mobile payments in Africa.
Ham and Maijid met at Grinnell College in Iowa, where they learned that they not only shared similar passions and interests, but also similar backgrounds (Ham is from Uganda and Maijid is from Ghana). The duo knew they wanted to collaborate and create something impactful at scale that leveraged their shared African heritage. Together, they founded Chipper Cash, which allows for instant cross-border mobile money transfers. However, before the duo could go all-in on their new company, they had to overcome some very unique challenges.
