MyFintechWeek2019 : Future Partnerships for Inclusion

Wakaful Update : Malaysia Fintech Week

The UNCDF hosted its Demo day at the MyFintechWeek. Together with Wakaful, the finalists were Pod, Goget, Senang, Mobile Money and Madcat World!

Wakaful was part of the accelerator organised by the UNCDF, in partnership with Bank Negara Malaysia, MDEC, QuickSand India and funded by Metlife Foundation. During the 3 month accelerator we met some amazing startups that are champions of financial inclusion! It was a great learning experience, and we are grateful for the opportunity to have been participating along side the most innovative startups in the fintech scene. For more info click here. Thanks to everyone who supported and helped us throughout this journey, special mention to the UNCDF Team, MDEC rep Syahira Omar, BNM mentors and our intern Liyana Aini.

Congratulations to the winners! Well done guys ! #Pod, #Goget, and #Senang .



Future Partnerships for Inclusion

During the accelerator Wakaful had pitched and validated its business model with its stakeholders. Getting this validation is driving our team to push through to find the right stakeholders to do a pilot with.

For the Pilot, Wakaful has partnered with :
Wahed Invest as fund manager
Goget as a vendor
– And Skolafund as a Beneficiary.

Moving forward, Wakaful is seeking to partner with a patron to pilot its blockchain platform. As patron your organisation is creating a fund with us that is dedicated to financial services for the unbanked !

Digital Governance Solutions for Ethical Investments

The Wakaful platform is where Patrons, Services Providers, Vendors, and Beneficiaries come together as members of the ecosystem to unlock value by circulating funds as charitable financial services to B40 communities or the unbanked. Wakaful uses a #Waqf model and thus our platform allows patrons to create trusts and manage them using our Digital Waqf Governance platform.

For more on our platform or details on how to become a patron, please do contact us directly on social media or via email at founders@wakaful.com .
