Business Name: Kopo Kopo (Kenya)
Short Business Description: Founder: Dylan Higgins, Ben Lyon
Long Business Description:

The name Kopo Kopo comes from kobboh kobboh, the Krio word for money. We owe our name to our pilot project in Sierra Leone. From our learnings in Sierra Leone and Kenya in early 2011, we were inspired to create a world-class platform to enable small and medium businesses to accept mobile payments and build relationships with their customers.
Kopo Kopo launched its core platform in Kenya in February 2012. We have recently partnered with Safaricom to bring the M-PESA Buy Goods service to small and medium businesses throughout Kenya and, today, we serve hundreds of businesses from salons to restaurants to office supply stores.
