Empowering Digital Identities in Africa

Seamfix, a pioneer in identity solutions across Africa, has marked a significant milestone with the successful closure of its first institutional funding round, securing $4.5 million from Alitheia IDF. This strategic investment positions Seamfix to accelerate its expansion beyond Nigeria's borders and address the growing demand for digital identity solutions across the continent.

Seizing Opportunities in Stable African Markets
