Morocco: Top 3 Funding Fintech Investments in 2021

In Northern Africa, Morocco ranks third in the start-up ecosystem with its major start-up cities of Marrakech, Tangiers, Casablanca, Rabat, and Agadir. It is an emerging innovation hub and an ideal location for software & data, ecommerce & retail, and social & leisure start-ups. It is also worth mentioning that Morocco has some of the highest rates of internet connectivity on the continent; about 74% of its population have internet access which puts it at an advantage to work remotely.

Last year, start-up funding in the country reached an all-time high of $29 million. Below are the top three investments in the fintech industry.

  • Inyad: Apps to grow and manage your business, Inyad is improving merchants’ day to day at scale.

  • Yalla Xash: Fair fees money transfer is the promise from this proud, multicultural, money transfer platform operating in the USA, Canada and Morocco. It serves a large Moroccan community in these communities, allowing those abroad to transfer money back home using its app. Last year, the five-year-old company raised $675,000 in funding to expand its services to other countries.
