HiPipo Leads the Charge in Financial Inclusion, Garnering Global Recognition


In an exhilarating development for the financial technology sector, HiPipo has been crowned the Most Innovative Financial Inclusion Organization for the Middle East and Africa at the prestigious FinTech Awards 2024, hosted by Wealth & Finance International. This accolade recognizes our past achievements and our future endeavours in global financial innovation.

Through our social media announcement, we shared the joy of this achievement: “We are honoured to receive this global recognition, which is proof to our dedicated team, our generous sponsors like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and robust partnerships with key stakeholders including the Ministry of ICT, Infitx, Mojaloop, and Comesa Business Council. This award reflects our commitment to digital and financial innovation and excellence.”

Our triumph follows a series of accolades, having been named Best Financial Inclusion Organization consecutively in 2022 and 2023. Notably, in 2022, HiPipo stood out as the only African company on Global Business Leaders Magazine’s list of the world’s top 20 innovators in digital financial services.

Adding to our celebration, our very own CEO, Innocent Kawooya, has been distinguished as the FinTech CEO of the Year 2024 for the Middle East and Africa. His visionary leadership continues to drive HiPipo’s mission of ‘Including Everyone’ in the digital financial narrative, ensuring that no one is left behind in the fast-evolving financial landscape.

Our journey from a promising regional innovator to a celebrated global leader in financial inclusion exemplifies our mission to harness technology for community empowerment. We are more than just a company; we are a movement that champions the inclusion of all, mainly focusing on the underserved and marginalised communities across Africa and beyond.

As we look to the future, HiPipo remains committed to pushing the boundaries of financial technology to create accessible, efficient, and inclusive financial ecosystems. We are excited to continue this journey, ensuring that our innovations lead to awards and, more importantly, to impactful, sustainable change.
