Our story started in 2015 when our founder and Group CEO, Jun Hasegawa, formed Omise Holdings to bring under one umbrella his vision to create the next generation of financial infrastructure.
At the beginning, Omise, an online payment gateway business, was our only company, but Jun knew that we would be much bigger than that.
Two year later in 2017, we welcomed a new subsidiary called OMG Network, a blockchain company that enables fast and secure digital value transfer around the world. Through innovations that expand access to payment and digital assets, we continue to diversify and pursue emerging opportunities in fintech.
With that in mind, in 2019, SYNQA welcomed Omise Labs, a digital transformation agent that helps enterprises transform their value proposition by embedding financial products to their own ecosystem.
Looking ahead to the future of the digital economy, in 2020, we embarked on corporate restructuring and refocused our purpose. To align with our revitalized identity, we changed our name from Omise Holdings to SYNQA.
Our investments in innovative technologies and our partnerships with businesses and individuals that share our values and vision to become an embedded financial ecosystem in Asia, had grown to become a core piece of our business.
SYNQA finance tech stack is now available in 140 countries across the globe. We continue to expand access to financial markets with our products and services. The next generation of financial infrastructure is a work in constant motion.
We partnered with Onii, a microchip technology company. Through this partnership, we provide the most seamless payment solutions by integrating microchips in your wrist or hand. Hardware and software are limitless.
We are a global holding company that builds forward-looking companies in fintech. At SYNQA, we aim to make financialservices and economic opportunities more accessible.
