Disruptive payment platform, Paystack is solving the inefficiencies of payment processing in Nigeria. Since it was founded in 2015, Paystack has recorded numerous wins, including setting a record as the first Nigerian startup to be accepted into the Y Combinator Programme.
Some months after the acquisition by Stripe, Paystack needed to expand into Ghana and turned to AfricaWorks for a modern work environment with enough flexibility to thrive as the business grows.
AfricaWorks provided Paystack with an enterprise solution, giving the payments company the flexibility to customise its workspace. The customised space features 10 private offices, a custom reception, and a meeting room.
“We’re thrilled to take space with AfricaWorks as we expand into the rest of Africa. The central location is geared towards collaboration and flexibility. We’re looking to attract great talent and thrive in Accra”. Amandine Lobelle, Head of Business, Paystack, said.
Gregoire Schwebig, Founder & CEO, AfricaWorks, says, “We’re delighted to partner with Paystack to establish their head office presence in Accra. Our mission at AfricaWorks is to unlock Africa’s business potential by providing high-quality office solutions and creating vibrant and successful business communities across the continent. It is exciting to be part of Paystack’s growth journey on the continent.”
AfricaWorks designed the new space in 4 weeks, saving Paystack money and time. In the end, we delivered a cost-saving project for Paystack without sacrificing quality and convenience.

Paystack builds technology to help Africa’s best businesses grow – from new startups to market leaders launching new business models. The company makes it easy for businesses to accept secure payments from multiple local and global payment channels. In 2020, Stripe – a global US technology company – acquired Paystack to accelerate its geographic expansion in Africa and introduce more payment channels, more value-added services, and deeper integrations with global platforms.
