We are dukapaq
Our story began simultaneously in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Hyderabad, India. Our founder Luka Mutinda was conducting experiments in Tulsa's historic Black Wall Street district via a non-dilutive pebble grant while our co-founder Neville Lusimba was building tech products for the Indian and Kenyan markets. Luka was seeing first hand how American mom and pop businesses were leveraging Point of Sale (PoS) technology to compete with the big guys and Neville was tapped into how fintech software was distributing technology in new ways across different emerging markets. Both had a relentless passion to bring digital solutions to these markets and drive innovation by providing global merchants with the tools needed to increase profits & achieve more efficiency.
This vision led to the inception of DUKAPAQ and has been a guiding principle as we scale our product from Tulsa to the world. DUKAPAQ has evolved today to become more than a rewards and loyalty program. We are building the Neobank of the future for the largest class of businesses on the planet; small, independent shops – and in the fastest growing places on earth.
We have since built a stellar team that is passionate about our customers and feature product. Outside of work we like Kenyan coffee, hiking, poetry, art, playing guitar, dogs, trying new restaurants and much more. We value curiosity, simplicity, inclusiveness, efficiency and customer obsession. Our locations are in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Nairobi, Kenya.
