Paying people living in extreme poverty is hard. Segovia technology makes it easy, facilitating payments across Africa and Asia through an integrated platform with support for both corporate payments and social programs.

Segovia payments are helping refugees restart their lives in Europe, helping communities rebuild after Ebola in Liberia, and supporting gig economy workers in East Africa, among many other applications.

Segovia’s team combines talented engineering with expertise in emerging-markets payments. Our team includes the co-founders of GiveDirectly, along with early technical leaders behind the IBM SmartCloud, Facebook’s internationalization team, and Google’s search query monetization and Palantir’s expansion into commercial work. Investment is led by Reif Hoffman along with Arif Naqvi, the Omidyar Network, and others.
