Who we are

Mezzanine was founded in 2009 and is a market leader in the development of mobile business solutions for Africa. We use the power of mobile technology to enable businesses and organisations working in Africa to mitigate risks, address challenges and unlock opportunities. With an estimated 800 million mobile subscribers in Africa, we view mobile technology as a major enabler for economic growth. Mezzanine is a subsidiary of Vodacom but we are network agnostic when we enter a new African market.

Our Technology

The Mezzanine helium platform is a centralised mobile and enterprise service environment that enables our clients with the deployment of vertical specific (e.g. health, agriculture, education….) solutions. Once a solution is deployed on the platform authorised users can securely access it via the web (HTML5), a native application on a mobile phone, USSD or SMS. Our aim is to decrease the cost of delivering; and increase efficiency and accessibility to business services across Africa.
