Juvo was founded with an overarching mission: to empower the billions of unbanked people around the world to create financial identities and access financial services - all through their everyday interactions with their mobile phone. In partnership with mobile network operators, Juvo’s proprietary Identity Scoring technology uses data science, machine learning and game mechanics to create an identity-based relationship with anonymous prepaid users, opening up access to otherwise unattainable mobile financial services.

Since emerging from stealth in September 2016, Juvo has increased its global reach more than five times over, from 100 million to over 500 million, and has steadily grown its operations and employee base worldwide with 55 employees today. To date, Juvo has enabled over 250M transactions in 25 countries and 4 continents, with 1M active users per day.

Juvo is a privately held company backed by global business leaders and luminaries in the world of tech, mobile and finance. Juvo just completed a US$40 million Series B funding round with funding from by top-tier VCs including NEA, Wing Venture, and Freestyle Capital. Early investors in the company, including the former CEOs of AT&T Wireless, NYSE, Sprint, Telefonica International and Vodafone Group, have each taken part in the latest B round. Its executive team comprises accomplished industry leaders across the data science, consumer internet, financial services and mobile telecom fields.
