Mahmood Ahmadu recognized by Euro-Knowledge Awards for payment services provider Innovate 1 Pay

Euro-Knowledge – an international consultancy and advisor to leading businesses and governments – in association with FIN Magazine – recognized the achievements of African change-makers in industry, policymaking and business in a grand ceremony recently held at the House of Lords, London.

Among those receiving merit, UAE-based entrepreneur and changemaker Mahmood Ahmadu received accolade for his platform Innovate I Pay, the largest provider of payment services in Nigeria with millions of client transactions and payments processed safely in Nigeria and globally through its platform. Since its incorporation in 2013, Innovate 1 has continued to grow in its geographic reach and business operations, both within Nigeria and internationally through partnerships in growth markets and targeted areas.

Mr. Ahmadu sets the strategic direction of the company while co-founder – Anthony Nwachukwu – implements the vision with a qualified team of managers and technology-savvy staff, helping increase economic inclusion in Africa for many of the world’s unbanked people.
