San Jose, CA, US

About Boku:

Incorporated in 2008, Boku is one of the world’s leading providers of carrier billing and mobile identity solutions. Using nothing more than a user’s mobile phone, Boku’s technology can verify a user’s identity, execute a payment, or provision a new service, radically simplifying common, everyday mobile interactions between consumers and businesses. This is possible because Boku’s platform can access the internal billing, identity, and sales systems of mobile operators globally. Businesses who utilize Boku’s platform include major brands such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, Sony, Facebook, Spotify, Netflix, Paypal, Experian, Fiserv, Western Union, Uber, and Discover. Boku was originally financed through top-tier investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Benchmark, DAG Ventures, Index Ventures, Khosla Ventures and NEA. Today, Boku is publicly traded on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange (AIM: BOKU.L)
