Moovn Pay is our proprietary payment platform that is integrated with leading Payment Gateways and mobile money solutions such as MPESA, MTN Money, Airtel Money and TigoPesa.
PAYMENTS MADE EASY
Whether shopping on Noobea for the latest fashion or booking a ride on Moovn, MoovnPay is working behind the scenes to ensure a seamless, secure and cash-free payment experience.
It is stated that Cash dominates nearly 75% of payments transactions across Africa. Moovn Pay is adequately positioned to process digital and mobile money transactions for more than 395 Million Telecom subscribers, in more that 20 Countries and 87 Major Cities across the Continent.
Moovn Technologies has traditionally used its platform to speak on social justice issues from the beginning of time. We launched the Moovnment Foundation aimed at giving back to our communities as well as addressing socio-economic and racial disparities. Black People – particularly Africans and African Americans are oftentimes discriminated upon when it comes to employment opportunities, housing, career advancement or Funding.
In June 2014, Godwin decided to launch Moovn Technologies with zero technical skills and a budget of $5,000. After 9 months, the first Moovn App prototype was launched into the Seattle Market and the rest is considered history.
After graduating with an MBA from the University of Washington, Foster School of Business, Godwin was eager to return to the job market and begin climbing the corporate ladder. The job search was not as smooth as he had anticipated. Passed up for multiple job opportunities, Godwin decided to pursue entrepreneurship with a business idea he had shelved for years.
Entering the Tech field was not easy especially given his competitors were already valued in the Billions. Not only was he ridiculed by investors and being told that he was “overly ambitious”, but was also shunned by software engineers who thought his business plan was unrealistic. Getting Moovn off the ground was not easy. Godwin spent many days and nights teaching himself how to code, and depleted his entire life savings into building the platform from scratch.
Moovn Technologies was founded with a tri-fold agenda which is: MOVING PEOPLE, DRIVING COMMERCE & CHANGING LIVES. We believe that technology has the power to either transform or marginalize people of color. We choose to focus on building technologies that will transform lives. For instance, we provide solutions to address discrimination of African American riders on competing rideshare platforms, creating a centralized marketplace for people to safely transact online or a payment solution that promotes financial inclusion particularly in disenfranchised communities.
Above all, we are committed to reinvesting in the communities that we do business in, as well as build a pipeline of future technical talent in support of Black Tech.
MOVING THE FUTURE
Did you know that Moovn Technologies is 100% designed, built, and maintained by brilliant young men and women in Africa?
Since Africa has largely been viewed as a consumer of technology, we decided to set our goals on changing the narrative from Consumers to Producers. This means that if you catch a Moovn ride in the streets of New York City or Nairobi (Kenya), expect your Moovn App experience to be engineered by young African men and women behind the platform. In fact, this makes us the ONLY technology services platform that is 100% produced and exported from the continent of Africa to America.
SUPPORTING DIVERSITY IN TECH
“Facebook Inc. says that 3 percent of its U.S. workforce is black, up from 2 percent in 2014. The company has declined to say how many of those people occupy technical roles. Only 2 percent of Google’s workers are black, a figure that has remained static for the past three years. The Alphabet Inc. unit’s efforts to increase that have sparked an internal backlash, with one former employee suing because of perceived discrimination against white and male candidates”. – Fortune Magazine
Moovn Technologies is compelled to address the lack of diversity in tech within the US given the under-representation of black people employed by technology companies. We also recognize that in order for us to scale, we need to support tech programs within our communities that would create a future pipeline of career and leadership opportunities for young black people.
We also recognize that there is a limited number of Tech related programs which invest in young black men and women in our communities. Our Moovnment Foundation aims to provide training, college recruitment, sustainable careers and leadership opportunities for young black men and women. Our goal is to support Tech related Programs in predominantly black Public Schools and HBCUs (Historic Black Colleges & Universities) across the United States and beyond.
Funds raised from the initiative will also be dedicated towards supporting initiatives and organizations that cater to programs related to Tech in predominantly black Public Schools and Historic Black Colleges & Universities across the United States.
“If consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of the entire US economy, imagine what directing some of that spending power to Black-owned businesses across the country can do. 48 percent of small of small business purchases are recirculated locally compared to only 14 percent of what’s circulated by chain stores. Supporting Black-owned businesses in turn support families, employees, and other business owners, as well as attract community investors who provide banking services, loans, and promote financial literacy–all things that build economic strength.” – Green Business Network (greenamerica.org)
We recognize that we have an opportunity to become a formidable technology company behind sustainable infrastructure of accessible platforms, that will elevate economic empowerment of black communities across America and beyond.
Support of The Moovnment Foundation enables us to economically empower disenfranchised black communities and change lives around the world for generations to come.
