IPS Technology was founded in 2013 in one of the rapidly developing global tech hubs - Dubai, the UAE. The company boasts a highly-qualified team with extensive expertise in financial and tech sectors, in-house IT platform and technological developments, a proven flexible business model, and a vision for positive change in the developing world.

Since its inception, the company has targeted Sub-Saharan Africa, the region lagging behind in terms of social and financial inclusion. Having built and tested an advanced technological platform, IPST has brought it to Nigeria establishing a local company, TopUp Africa. TopUp Africa was set up in late 2014, entered the market in mid-2015, and has since achieved a number of milestones, including

  • direct integration with all mobile operators in the country,
  • a pilot project with one of the major electricity distribution companies,
  • introduction of various user-friendly recharge channels,
  • preliminary agreements with several leading financial institutions and service providers.

TopUp Africa has demonstrated a steady growth in its client base and sales volume throughout the last year.
