Within the CEMEA (Central Europe, Middle East, and Africa) region, CarePay Nigeria is one of five new businesses to participate in the Visa everywhere effort. Around a thousand applications came in from all over the CEMEA region, which consists of approximately one hundred different nations. The five finalists were chosen from those applications, and the innovative health tech startup is one of them. On Friday, June 17, 2022, TechCrunch will broadcast a webcast of the CEMEA regional finals event that will take place that year.
At the live event, CarePay will demonstrate its cutting-edge CarePay healthcare merchant offers program, which will feature the CarePay healthcare discount card product. This demonstration will be a part of the events that will take place. The health technology startup will demonstrate how negotiating, aggregating, and coordinating discounts across hundreds of healthcare merchants can drive customer retention and brand retention for financial technology companies, credit card networks, banks, telecommunications companies, and pension funds that adopt the CarePay healthcare discount product as loyalty benefits for their customers.
" I couldn't be happier that the CarePay healthcare merchant offers program, which includes the CarePay healthcare discount card product, is garnering substantial recognition and exposure on a global scale in just its first 90 days after going online. CarePay's shortlisting as one of five finalists in the Visa CEMEA everywhere program is a clear testament to the hard work, dedication, and innovation displayed by our employees in Lagos, Amsterdam, and Nairobi. Yomi Sule, Managing Director at CarePay Nigeria, made this statement.
" I am especially thankful to the healthcare merchants that gave up discounts on their usual pricing in order to support this proposition, as well as the retail early adopters who have signed up via the https://healthcare.carepay.com website. I am also grateful to the fintech companies that are working with us to make this product accessible to millions of their customers as a loyalty benefit and as a tool/feature to drive increased affordability of healthcare services for their customers. This collaboration is making it possible for us to make this product available. Above all else, we are grateful to Visa for the openness and efficiency with which it conducted the preceding stages of the competition. We are looking forward to the event as well as our future partnerships with Visa and our customers. He added
