SmartFunder Team Woking

As Nelson Mandela once stated: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. Funding is currently one of the biggest challenges in education and SmartFunder aims to utilise the advances in technology and legislation to assist the private sector to get involved in educational funding and help grow South Africa.

At SmartFunder we focus on quality, cost efficiency, compliance and transparency. We set up and administer bursary schemes and educational funding for companies. What differentiates SmartFunder from any other services provider in the market is our system which is specifically geared to handle the volumes of big corporates. This includes a custom built onboarding platform, cutting edge verification system and cost effective payments distribution system.
