Mobile First DeFi Platform – Celo is an open platform that makes financial tools accessible to anyone with a mobile phone. Our mission is to build a financial system that creates the conditions of prosperity—for everyone.
We are a decentralized community of creators — developers, designers, dreamers, doers — who are motivated by the power of accessible financial tools to make the world a better place.
Globally, about one in every three adults do not have a bank account. As a simple consequence of this, they don’t have a straightforward means of receiving or storing value across distance, and therefore are excluded from a large part of the global economy.
We believe that to create a truly inclusive financial system, we must start by building an infrastructure to serve those excluded from the current system. Further, we believe that if we are able do so, the resulting system will be more useful, more resilient, more full-featured, and more accessible for everybody.
