Danish start-up Jamii Pay in delicious launch
Copenhagen-based payments start-up Jamii Pay plans to stick around as it has powered up and entered our fintech world.
The firm is the creation of Charlotte Rønje, a former senior consultant at Pwc in Denmark.
Today (10 August), Jamii was selected for the incubator programme at Copenhagen Fintech’s lab.
This is a three month programme, with Jamii joining in September. The lab offers such perks as free office space and co-designed workshops. Later, the start-ups will get a chance to do a final pitch to selected partners and VCs.
These are early days for Jamii – and there aren’t a lot of details. There’s also a limit to how many ‘jam’ puns I can squeeze in. (Although, in the Swahili language, Jamii does mean “community”. Which could be a hint to the firm’s ambitions.)
Rønje says: “I’m looking so much forward to creating a winning team and delivering a purposeful service … do you want to join?”
FinTech Futures has contacted Rønje for more details about her new company and those recruitment plans.
By the way, back in June, Copenhagen Fintech and non-profit organisation CARE were seeking start-ups with ideas in providing loans and cash for the unbanked in Asia and Africa.
