Prepay Nation is a leading global provider that offers international mobile top-up and micropayment services. The company offers international mobile top-ups using its innovative software platform, the international prepaid mobile ecosystem, and an extensive network of retail, online and mobile channels.
Anurag Jain, the Co-Founder and CEO of Prepay Nation, spoke at Startup Global Philadelphia, co-hosted by GIF, in 2017.
Originally coming from India, Anurag identified that there is no existing good way for immigrants to support their families in developing countries due to the poor communication infrastructure and the fact that most people don’t have the bank account or access to ATM. He then realized that there is a revolutionary way to serve the unmet need because “Everybody has a mobile phone, and commerce has started to happen through them,” said Jain. Prepay Nation is built on the idea and quickly turns into a $110 million company in a few years.
Technology also plays an important role in helping Prepay Nation scale globally. The team uses LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, together with other web-based technology to expand market reach and to smooth daily operation.
