Africa FinTech space has hoped on the global growing trend and is also making huge leaps with its several innovations, especially in the digital payment space, with mobile money accounting for part of its growth.


Even though COVID-19 brought a halt and challenges to many FinTech operations, the sector is still pushing on forward, fueled by creative innovations and huge market demand by the ballooning consumer segment.

This growth path is not without challenges, such as regulatory, low-level financing options for start-ups, slow pace of human capital development, especially in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), lack of sustained intercontinental collaborations, and challenging business environment.

The upcoming webinar is however coming at an optimum time when there is an urgent need to discuss trends in the Fintech sector, what challenges Africa’s FinTech sector is experiencing, and analyzing its exciting future.
