Legal & Compliance Manager @Future Africa
Converting to naira to pay our employees is a stressful process, and people want to earn in USD. additionally, we have expatriates from different parts of the world, not only is there a limited expatriate quota, the cost is quite high. I’m pumped that Itana may help solve all of these problems.


Founder & COO @Ecofresh
It's been difficult to repatriate capital out of Nigeria for my business and I’ve been looking for a scalable way for a while. Itana potentially can be the only way to solve this problem.


Founder & CEO @Empowa
I’m trying to expand my business into West Africa. What Itana is trying to do that differs from others is that we’re part of an ecosystem. And I value being a part of a community with other startups more than going in our own way.
