Seamfix Lands $4.5 Million in New Funding


Seamfix, a global provider of digital identity solutions, has secured $4.5 million in a private equity funding round from Alitheia IDF, a gender lens investing fund. This funding will enable Seamfix to expand the technological infrastructure behind its solutions, improve data flow crucial for continental trade and integration, and initiate the rollout of its digital ID and credential services in five additional African nations.

Founded in Nigeria, Seamfix provides large organizations and government agencies across several African countries with options for identity generation, verification, and transaction accreditation.

Seamfix, founded by Chimezie Emewulu and Chibuzor Onwurah, has been at the forefront of providing comprehensive digital ID and credential solutions, connecting organizations and individuals to numerous identity databases across Africa and the globe.

To support their customers worldwide in creating, verifying, and accessing reliable digital identities and services, the company has developed a range of solutions for businesses, including Veremark. Their clientele features Nigeria’s National Identity Management Commission (NIMC),telecommunications giants like MTN, Glo, Airtel, and 9 Mobile, as well as financial institutions such as United Bank for Africa, Interswitch, and Union Bank.

Among Seamfix’s most remarkable achievements is the development of a robust digital solution that provides over 100 million Nigerians with comprehensive access to National Identity Numbers (NINs).

Seamfix has assisted Nigerian telecom service providers in complying with Nigerian Communications Commission regulations by registering and validating a database of over 200 million Subscriber Identification Modules (SIMs).

Major telecom companies across Africa—including Nigeria, Côte D’Ivoire, Liberia, Sudan, Guinea-Bissau, and others—rely on Seamfix for SIM registration, verification, and national identity linking. Additionally, thousands of fintech firms and SMEs use Seamfix’s verification APIs for background checks on new hires and KYC checks during customer onboarding.

Chimezie Emewulu, Group CEO and co-founder of Seamfix, expressed excitement about the new funding, stating, “We are thrilled to announce this new funding, which marks a significant milestone in our journey of shaping the future of digital ID verification in Africa and connecting Africa to the rest of the world.

Digital identity is a right, not a privilege, and this belief underpins our innovation and commitment to enabling individuals and businesses in Africa to access all the benefits that come with having verifiable identities. This investment not only validates our vision but also empowers us to expand our reach and innovate further. We are thankful for the support from Alitheia IDF and their commitment to our mission, and we are excited to lead the charge in shaping a digitally inclusive Africa.”

This funding, which marks Seamfix’s first institutional investment, will enable the company to extend its services to Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Ethiopia, and Uganda.
