About Consult Hyperion

Consult Hyperion is an independent technical and strategic consultancy, providing a wide range of skills and services to help our clients achieve their goals and gain valuable knowledge about the digital transactions industry.

Our Financial Inclusion practice draws on experience gained advising on technology, business models and regulatory best practices in many countries and has very specific and unique expertise around using mobile technology to drive financial inclusion bringing social inclusion in its wake.

We have been active in mobile money since the technology’s earliest days when we assisted Vodafone in the development of the M-PESA service in 2004 (we carried out the initial feasibility study into what is now the world’s largest mobile money scheme). We also played a crucial role in the launch of M-PESA in Kenya in 2007 when the mobile money industry grew beyond expectations.

We have used this experience to help connect marginalised and excluded people in developing markets in Africa and Asia where there is little to no infrastructure but we have also done work on a number of European services with differing technical and commercial requirements.

We have worked with mobile operators, banks, NGOs, donors and a variety of third parties to develop, launch and operate ground-breaking mobile value transfer services.
