A very positive story, if one that is not yet well understood, is unfolding in Africa. New technology, new ideas and new business models are producing new opportunities. The distinctions between telecom services providers, payments services providers and financial institutions are blurring and breaking down. In virtually all African countries, there are sufficient numbers of mobile phones - which are not necessarily smartphones - for previously unbanked people to have access to high quality financial services at low cost. Innovative companies are using Blockchain technology and crypto-currencies to resolve fundamental problems such as lack of access to electricity and lack of access to global financial markets. Finnovation Africa highlights how FinTech is transforming Africa for the better, facilitating payments, boosting financial inclusion and developing new enterprises.However, the conference does
much more than that, as it engages key stakeholders to reveal how the entire world is changing. In many ways, Africa is a FinTech leader, rather than a follower.
The hugely successful events in our Finnovation Africa Series in Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa saw more than 1000 thought leaders, FinTech pioneers and bankers representing the foremost financial institutions from across the continent gather to address how FinTech can contribute to the positive and profitable transformation of financial services in Africa. From banking powerhouses to start-up FinTech disruptors, Finnovation World sets the stage for the positive and profitable transformation of financial services - and we expand the conversation to Ethiopia second time.
