Dojah, the African KYC and user onboarding platform, has hired former Mono Head of Business Development, Elder Osifo as VP, Sales, and Partnerships.
Osifo is a sales veteran with a track record of championing partnerships and strategic business development initiatives for companies like Mono and Interswitch across the African market. Similar to his work at Mono, Dojah disclosed to Benjamindada.com via a press statement that Elder would be setting up a pan-African sales network for Dojah across Ghana, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Rwanda, and Tanzania among other countries.
Founded in 2021 by Tobi Ololade and Ayomide Oso, Dojah has the single goal of empowering scale and innovation for businesses in Africa, so that more lives are impacted through technology by providing a unified KYC and digital onboarding solution for organizations looking to scale across Africa.
The Lagos-based startup was a part of the YC 2022 winter batch. Prior to joining YC, the startup reached new milestones by integrating onboarding and KYC endpoints for five African countries—Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, and Uganda. The startup claimed to have powered identity verification for over 400 businesses and has verified more than 4 million identities across Africa’s major economies.
Osifo said that "Dojah is playing a very pivotal role in helping Africans trust and engage essential products and services that they need. I look forward to the challenge of connecting major businesses in the African ecosystem to Dojah’s onboarding and identity verification APIs."
"With over 10 years of experience across sales, business development and partnership roles, Osifo is an exciting addition to our team and we have the utmost confidence in the results he would be able to achieve for our growth as a company," Dojah's CEO Tobi Ololade said. Ololade believes that Osifo brings a vast network of quality business relationships to our sales team and will be a great partner for other employees and vendors who come into contact with him.
