The Search, Global Tour: Africa, stop 1

21 July 2021, 2:00 PM GMT / 4:00 PM GST

Africa is being mooted as the next big fintech hub and it certainly looks to be a contender with new fintechs raising almost $350m during the first quarter of 2020. In the first of two webinars live from the African continent, we’ll be taking a look at the opportunities offered by its 54 nations as we hear from another four inspirational fintech startups.

Join Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, Founder & General Partner at Future Africa for a closer look at how he, and Andela co-founder Nadayar Enegesi, kick-started Future Africa.

We’ll also meet Frank Molla, Managing Director & Head of Sub-Sahara Africa at BPC Technologies, for a discussion on the opportunities presented by the African continent and why fintech startups are thriving.

Join Fintech Abu Dhabi in a global search for the most innovative and disruptive startups within financial technology.

Between June and November, Fintech Abu Dhabi highlights more than 35 countries with 23 planned tour stops. The Search comes to an end at the final destination, MENA’s leading fintech festival, Fintech Abu Dhabi happening 22 - 24 November 2021. Each virtual tour stop features interviews and panel debates as fintech leaders from the host country share their thoughts on how fintech innovations have shaped their region.
