Flickswitch helps companies build Internet of Things and Fintech solutions.

Many Fintech solutions require the rollout of mobile data enabled devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) and FinTech, while completely separate technologies, frequently meet in real life – this is because FinTech applications often rely on connected devices such as payment terminals, point-of-sale (POS) devices, vending terminals, tablets, and transaction confirmation or order-printing devices.

Born and bred in South Africa in 2007, Flickwitch has grown to offer comprehensive SIM management solutions to various industries, specialising in M2M, IoT and Fintech applications across various mobile networks in most African countries. We have offices in South Africa, Kenya and Ghana.

We offer rapid speed to market for customers, cost control and reliability and our online interfaces are intuitive and easy to understand.

We partner with the leading operators on the continent including Vodacom, Airtel, MTC and others.

Hein Koen, Co-Founder and COO

Hein is a "specialist generalist", with experience in multinational corporate life and later in business incubation, the start-up minefield, product development and managing growth. He is currently learning a lot about scaling and establishing multi-country operations.

Willem Malherbe, Co-founder and CFO

Willem is passionate about scaling companies, analytics, economics and music and enjoy a good red wine, travelling and all things tech. Unlike most people, he has been both a corporate-type P&L owner in a large multinational and a get-things-done hustler in a start-up. And he’s enjoyed both.

Kees Snijders, Co-founder and CEO

Kees Is a seasoned technology professional in the telco space. Having ground his teeth in the banking, medical aid and telco world, he co-founded Flickswitch with a sharp focus on solving mobile connectivity problems for companies across Africa.

    Dov Girnum, CEO Merchant Capital

    Lorien Gamaroff, CEO Bankymoon

  • Being located in the heart of Africa's biggest financial services hub, we have gained a lot of credibility through AlphaCode. Our customers trust our brand by association, which results in increased sales of cows.

    Ntuthuko Shezi, CEO Livestock Wealth

  • AlphaCode is without a doubt the premium fintech and startup community in South Africa providing many learning, growth and network opportunities and an environment which adds concrete value to us

    Schalk Nolte, Founder Entersekt

  • Slide is now well on the way to causing significant disruption in the South African fintech sector. We would not have been able to break into the South African market so rapidly without the help provided by AlphaCode.

    Alon Stern, Founder Slide

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in providing a platform for us to access industry thought leaders, networks, working space, coaching and ultimately the opportunity to pitch to global multi-nationals and secure funding that very few startups get to land in their first year.

    Priya Mistry, Founder CommuScore

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in the growth of our business. Through the club, we have met many like-minded entrepreneurs and businesses with whom we have formed strategic partnerships. The team is incredibly generous with their time and continue to give us invaluable mentorship and support.
