Maana Mobile

Why we Invested

Scott was our first BETA Resident. Maana Mobile is now a part of the BSP Fund Portfolio. We believe that Maana has the potential to offer a wide variety of mobile applications that both leverage and enhance the social clout that exists in informal economies in emerging markets.

About Client

Maana Mobile provides a mobile phone platform and tools to build relationships and more easily conduct business with old and newly formed contacts.  The MM platform leverages an overlooked asset for many, their mobile phone contact book, to find relevant connections between users on a transaction basis. The platform not only allows the server to build a “trust” database for users, but also enables applications to leverage those relationships. As users conduct transactions, valuable knowledge is generated to offer improved results and decision information resources such as alternative methods for assessing credit worthiness.
