A Brief History

Genie Capital has been in the works since 2007 when our Managing Director, Otto B. Isong co-founded Carbon Group with two friends. Over time, he moved unto other projects and businesses like TopUpDesk (an online airtime top up utility, defunct), Pursar (a digital payment platform, morphed to Pursar Technologies), School of Petroleum Logistics (a higher institute for petroleum business, defunct), Akwajobs.com etc.Over these experiences, Otto realized one of the biggest limitations to Cameroon's development is our inability to raise capital to fund the development of infrastructure and nascent technologies. In 2013, he started researching and testing some concepts that would eventually lead to Genie Capital.
