Ubuntu Capital provides digital marketing and payment processing solutions for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in urban centers within emerging markets, where 90% of the economy is informal and few enterprises maintain a digital presence.
In urban centers currently, consumers have challenges identifying quality, reliable, trustworthy vendors; meanwhile, reputable SMEs struggle to distinguish themselves from their less qualified counterparts, build a strong brand, receive their revenue, and grow their businesses.
Founded in early 2015, Ubuntu seeks to bring transparency to these markets, promoting resilient, meritocratic local economies. This type of economy, we believe, affords the best chance of eliminating poverty through equitable, truly sustainable growth.
Ubuntu is incorporated in the U.S., and has a country office in Kampala, Uganda.
