Two startups from Ghana, ClaimSync and Saya Mobile will be joining the MEST incubator located in Accra, Ghana and receiving seed funding to further develop their business ideas. Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST), is a three-phase entrepreneurial program designed to foster the growth of global software companies from Africa.ClaimSync provides an end-to-end system that enables healthcare service providers to easily compile medical claims electronically which are later submit them to insurance companies for processing. The ClaimSync platform seeks to reduce the high administrative and labor costs, delays in reimbursements and data entry errors associated with manual processing of paper claims.

Saya Mobile currently offers a mobile group and individual chat application available to both feature and smart phone users. Saya’s application is also available across the different mobile OS platforms. Saya is a thousand times cheaper than SMS and uses phone contacts as it's medium of connection.

These companies will join six others currently in the MEST incubator program, and hope to launch their products within the next few months. In addition to funding, these companies will receive guidance and support from the incubator staff and mentors, which will be critical to taking their companies to the next level.
