Paystack, an African Fintech scale up, expands into Ghana and establishes its country headquarters (HQ) at AfricaWorks Accra. The fintech company turned to AfricaWorks for a modern high quality flex workstation and a Pan-African community to thrive as the business grows.
AfricaWorks is on a mission to unlock Africa’s business potential through work and Paystack is a technology company solving payments problems for ambitious businesses on the continent. The synergy between the two companies will help fast track the growth of the business ecosystem on the continent.
AfricaWorks has experienced record growth since its launch: from 1 single coworking space back in 2019, the company has now expanded into 10 spaces in 8 cities across the Continent, having companies like L’Oreal, Universal Music, Toyota, Glovo etc. as members. AfricaWorks has capitalised on the ever increasing demand for good quality coworking spaces from Multinationals, SMEs and startups in Africa looking to rationalise their operational cost by offering turnkey professional corporate flex offices accelerating business opportunities and fostering innovation.
Opened in October 2020, AfricaWorks Accra Airport Residential space is conveniently located at Volta Place, 35 Patrice Lumumba Street. The space offers 130 Private workstations, 4 Meeting Rooms, 1 18-pax Boardroom over 2 floors and 1,000 sqm. On-site amenities also include a roof-top cafe, ample parking spaces, Wi-Fi, 24 hours access and uninterrupted power supply. AfricaWorks Accra Airport Residential is 5 mn away from the International Airport and 10 mn from the Accra-Tema Motorway. The central location, modern amenities and supportive PanAfrican community are chief reasons why PayStack chose to install their Ghana HQ at AfricaWorks Accra Airport Residential.
Amandine Lobelle, Head of Business, Paystack says “We’re thrilled to be taking space with AfricaWorks as we expand into the rest of Africa. The central location, amenities, and workspace are geared towards collaboration and flexibility. We’re looking to attract great talent and this will be the perfect space to grow our business and thrive in Accra.”
Gregoire Schwebig Founder & CEO, AfricaWorks commented “We’re delighted to partner with Paystack to establish their head office in Accra. Our mission at AfricaWorks is to unlock Africa’s business potential by providing high-quality office solutions and in turn create vibrant and successful business communities across the continent. It is exciting to be part of Paystack’s growth journey on the continent.”
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 their geographic expansion in Africa and introduce more payment channels, more value-added services, and deeper integrations with global platforms.
