Helicarrier and Accrue’s partnership
Helicarrier and Accrue have a long history together. The company was the very first investor in Accrue which was founded by ex-Helicarrier teammates. The mission to help Africans build wealth by leveraging transformational digital currency technology is a shared driving force for both companies.
In confirmation of the longstanding partnership and latest acquisition between both companies, Accrue’s co-founder, Clinton Mbah commented that the partnership was more of a transfer of the goodwill of the latter to its brand.
Everything you love about Helicarrier culture and its products — ease of use, timely customer support, fantastic product sense, execution speed, technical chops, and tenacity in the face of adversity, are tenets we brought over to Accrue. We’re committed to these tenets forever.Clinton Mbah, Co-founder Accrue
