Meltwater Foundation provides seed funding for two new Ghanaian software startups

The Meltwater Foundation is investing in two new Ghanaian software start-ups, following two years of training and mentoring in software entrepreneurship.

According to the Foundation, the two teams which are ClaimSync and Saya Mobile, will be joining the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) and will be receiving seed funding to further develop their business ideas.

ClaimSync provides an end-to-end system that enables healthcare service providers to easily compile medical claims electronically which are later submit them to insurance companies for processing.

Saya Mobile currently offers a mobile group and individual chat application available to both feature and smart phone users.

In a statement, Meltwater said these companies will join six others currently in the “MEST incubator programme, and hope to launch their products within the next few months” and aside the funding, “these companies will receive guidance and support from the incubator staff and mentors, which will be critical to taking their companies to the next level.”

“The progression of these companies to the MEST Incubator is a testament to the talent, drive and entrepreneurial spirit of our students, and the remarkable potential that they possess,” said Jorn Lyseggen, CEO and founder of Meltwater.

The MEST Incubator, located in Accra, Ghana, is the second stage of Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology. It is a three-phase entrepreneurial programme designed to foster the growth of global software companies from Africa.
