Kiaan Pillay is the Co-Founder and CEO of Stitch, a payments infrastructure company that helps businesses seamlessly connect to the financial system.
Kiaan has been successfully leading Stitch towards becoming one of the top influential API fintech companies in Africa. Stitch customers range from wallet-based companies such as Chipper Cash, Luno, and Zapper, to financial services providers such as Franc, ImaliPay, and Sanlam, to subscription and e-commerce players like FlexClub, to payment service providers and aggregators such as Paystack, Peach, and Yoco.
In 2021, Stitch managed to raise an amazing $21,000,000 during their Series A funding round, which they have used to significantly expand the team, launch new product offerings, and enter new markets across the continent. Recently (in August 2023) they managed to raise another $14,974,759 altogether raising just over $30 million in the past 3 years.
