“We are proud to be an award-winning startup born in Qatar, raised in the Middle East, and ready to conquer beyond technology and territories." said Michael Javier during an interview with Innovation Cafe. The journey of CWallet has been marked by substantial investments from prominent backers, including Microsoft, Visa, and a pool of local angel investors. These investments, totaling millions of dollars, have provided CWallet with the necessary resources to pursue its mission of democratizing banking and promoting financial inclusion. With a focus on providing user-centric solutions, CWallet aims to bridge the gap between traditional banking services and modern digital solutions, empowering individuals and businesses alike to navigate the financial landscape with ease.
