As part of efforts to increase the use of fintech apps amongst individuals and businesses, the management of Dnar™ in partnership with GODEP has launched an initiative to help startups succeed and expand on their new QR code payment structure.
GODEP (Ghana-Oracle Digital Enterprise Program) is an acceleration program for startups powered by Oracle Corporation while Dnar™ is a leading fintech mobile payment app in Ghana with over 35,000 users and growing.
This step will also allow Dnar™ to receive additional resources to help facilitate the process for the startups to expand on their new QR code payment structure.
Speaking at the launch, the Chief Executive Officer of Dnar Inc., Enoch Antwi said the opportunity gives startups like Dnar™ a unique acceleration program aimed at growing their businesses.
“I encourage all tech enthusiasts, tech startups, and tech companies to take advantage of all the avenues created by the Government of Ghana and through this new partnership with Oracle [GODEP]. Actively be part of the platforms and services at your disposal to unearth latent talents. Showcase and sharpen your strengths and competencies. We must attain the heights where technology becomes a pliant tool by which our socio-economic and physical environment is manicured into a desired legacy worth leaving to posterity,” he said.
“For Dnar™, this partnership promises to enable the further development of Dnar™ into a global fintech product. With the GODEP, Dnar™ will continue to innovate and expand,” he added.
Dnar™ is also in preliminary talks with the Ghanaian SEC concerning formal approval of cryptocurrency features such as cryptocurrency payments to merchants.
This cryptocurrency payment feature along with the recent addition of QR code payments to merchants promises provide yet another much-needed convenience to their growing user-base.
The move comes months after Vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, announced government’s special interest in making sure the country’s digitization drive is increased.
“Ghana looks forward. We are the gateway to Africa, the ever-shining black star – with a forward looking mindset. We only expect new glorious breakthroughs because at present, we are ready to apply new remedies with digitization and technology innovation,” Bawumia stated.
