Fresh thinking for a brighter financial future

Our mission is to help businesses propel forward with smart, accessible financial technology solutions.

Our vision is to build a brighter financial future for all with digital financial technology.

Pomelo builds B2B platform solutions to solve industry and payment challenges across the financial ecosystem. We are driven by our passion for using financial technology to support businesses and drive payment efficiencies and innovation across the financial ecosystem to ultimately benefit merchants and their customers.

Pomelo works with financial institutions and enterprises providing access to the latest payment rails, acquiring infrastructure, and more. Our presence in Europe and Asia combined with our technology places us in a unique position to support growth by resolving working capital challenges faced by businesses both domestically in these markets and overseas.

Founded in London, UK in 2017, Pomelo began by helping businesses digitise their payment infrastructure and take payments from anyone, anywhere at a low cost and without the need for expensive point-of-sale hardware. It continues to provide these solutions directly to businesses in the UK as Pomelo Pay and leverages this experience to enhance its Payments Platform as a Service (PPaaS) offering.

Our values


The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We have an in-office culture that elevates our knowledge together.

Consistent learning

The only constant is change. To keep pace with change, we keep learning to ensure we are never left behind.


Our transparency helps us build trust. The trust we have in each other is vital for us in achieving our goals, objectives and mission.


We win together and lose together. Failure is only another opportunity to learn and is never the fault of one person or thing.
