African Changemaker

Ham Serunjogi

Ham is a Ugandan fintech entrepreneur helping design products and deliver services that improve people’s lives — one transaction at a time.

He is the co-founder and CEO of Chipper Cash, a financial technology company that provides mobile-based cross-border payment services in Africa.

Under their leadership, Serunjogi and his co-Founder Maijid Moujaled have built Chipper Cash from a little-known app touting the potential of cross-border payments to a Pan-African unicorn.


Serunjogi and Moujaled launched Chipper Cash to solve the problem of high transaction fees and limited access to financial services across Africa.

Serunjogi has been recognized for his entrepreneurial efforts and was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2021.
