Chris PrincipeCEO Solidus Global, Ltd. Publisher FinFuture & Financial IT
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 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.

“Fintech is evolving very fast and the CIS countries present a great investment opportunity to VC’s and global FinTechs as the population is eager to have better and more convenient financial services.”
Brian RichardsonCEO and co-founder WIZZIT International
“At the start of a new decade there is so much happening in the Fintech space. The CIS countries are ready for innovation in the financial services space and this conference will be highlighting the trends and challenges but more importantly the opportunities that exist.”
Mark YoungCEO: Southern Africa MyBucks
"We see data as an asset, with the same power to be geared or leveraged as any other more traditional financial asset. This applies not only to us as a Fintech but to each consumer, wherever they are. Consumers need to see the wealth of data they generate as part of their own personal balance sheets and understand the value this holds."
