Michael Spencer has got a good story to tell. His career has seen him move from VP of The Bank of New York, Director at Credit Suisse First Boston, Director at Goldman Sachs to the CTO of ASMALLWORLD. This experience led Michael to his focus today which is as the CEO and Co-Founder of SmartMoney International. 
SmartMoney is an Africa based Fintech that is harnessing the explosive growth of mobile phone usage across Africa. The approach is unique in that it is focussing on rural market entry to gain network effect advantages in the highly contested urban markets.

 Working with us to create or accelerate your FinTech product means you get access to our expert product teams across design and engineering that have been building products together for a very long time.
You get the benefit of a studio that is big enough for no key person dependencies to exist but small enough so that you are always close to the principals.
And, you get the benefit of our reusable component library which means we are often able to build your product faster than anyone else could at a comparable standard.
As one of our clients said “Nona is the type of business that paints the back of the wardrobe. Because if you want to be the best, that's the sort of thing that you do”.
