What’s Your Story: pawaPass – Sylvia Brune (CEO)

By Joseph-Albert Kuuire 1 Min Read

Sylvia Brune is currently the CEO at pawaPass, an inclusive verification platform for Africans that enables access to services using biometrics that can be captured on any smartphone

Sylvia started her entrepreneurial journey when she was part of the management team that ran Africa’s first accelerator program, 88mph. The program invested in 45 companies from 2011-2015 across Nairobi and Cape Town, and in Lagos as 440NG, a JV with L5 Labs. 

She then started her own company called AHOY, a concierge flight booking app that empowered frequent travelers with DIY tools and 24/7 support for flight management. She ran the business from 2015 to 2021.

She then started pawaPass after AHOY had to be shut down because of COVID. The company is working with brands and companies, helping to increase the number of people who can access opportunities such as remote jobs, online trade, and financial services.
