The Koosmik team is delighted to wish you all a very happy new year. We thank you for your continued support that has helped us achieve our 2016 goals as well as develop our 2017 roadmap.
This past year has seen the beta launch of our mobile payment application and the successful deployment of the Koosmiles loyalty programme. We would like to thank our first Fintech customers for their trust in us since our humble beginnings. Koosmik’s payment services are now live at the John Paul concierge desks of several large corporate entities in Luxembourg.
We were also happy to confirm the relevance of our solution when it comes to processing online B2C & C2B payments. In this regard, we have had the opportunity to serve the interest of Forum Etudes, a trusted partner that connects consumer companies with individuals willing to fulfil marketing surveys.
Through our efforts and involvement in the Luxembourgish innovation ecosystem, Koosmik featured in Paperjam’s “50 startups to follow in Luxembourg”.
Key strategic relationships have been forged in and outside Luxembourg. This effort over the past two years has prepared us for our next phase of innovation and provided us with the foundations to begin our deployment towards the French speaking region of West Africa (read Africa in the Mobile Era) that we consider as one of the most mature regions for the mass adoption of mobile banking solutions.
2017 will be a crucial year and will require a lot of hard work and dedication. Having set ourselves difficult challenges; we have every intention of achieving our ambitious objectives.
Currently though, it’s all hands-on deck to secure our series A funding round. Early signs are positive and we expect to close by the end of Q1 2017. This investment is key for us to continue to strengthen our team of talents and to organise our soft landing in Africa.
We will share more about the future of Koosmik and its features very soon.
For now, please allow us to once again thank you all for accompanying us on our ambitious journey and for your indispensable feedback.
Wishing you all a happy, successful and prosperous new year.
